The main problem of this topic is an attitude to migrants, who live in Russia, mainly in Moscow and in Moscow region. This theme is topical, because nowadays anyone can go anywhere he wants. Many people from Russia moved to the USA in the 90s, we can see many Arabs in London nowadays as well, so Russian people tend to go and live in big and rich cities like Moscow or Saint-Petersburg. Migrants, who come to Moscow, can be from Russian provinces or from other countries, like China. Of course, all these people, who were not born in Moscow, can seem strange for Muscovites, because they often have different education, conditions of life and cultural features. Moreover, people who were not born there, but who live in Moscow can have different opinion about migrants from other countries.I’ll make a review of the works connected with theory of social capital and perceived threat. Firstly, it will be Stephan’s theory of perceived threat, Putnam’s theory and Coleman’s theory of social capital and also works of Lebedeva, Tatarko and Berry.Main key references: social capital, perceived threat, migrants.
