During the last 2-3 years, the integration (or rather non-integration) of migrants has become the burning issue of Russian migration. The reason has its roots in the growth of inter-ethnic tension and manifestations of open nationalism, which are in turn the result of people’s wider discontent with social inequality and administrative dereliction combined with a crisis in national self-identification. Ineffective migration management, resulting in wide-scale irregular migration, exasperates Russian society and fuels social strain.
