Traditional ethnic community considered as a primordial formation (thus actualizes the Social Order/Communal Solidarity), the experience of "separation from the roots", exposure to foreign cultural influences, education, and other factors make migrant groups more prone to following the morality of Social Justice/Communal Responsibility, and maybe vice versa - surrounded by other cultures the group rally through homogenization and setting clear boundaries (Social Order/Communal Solidarity). Therefore, the research question of the study is: what moral foundations underlie ingroup solidarity of the Armenians living in Moscow? The theoretical part of the study is based on two studies: on the Model of Moral Motives (Janoff-Balmen R., Carnes NC) and Moral Foundations Theory (J. Haidt.). To achieve the goal the researcher interviewed men and women, representatives of Armenian nationality, both sexes, and the following age ranges: 18-49, 50 years and older. In the research non-random, purposive sampling was used. Data for the study was collected through semi-structured interviews. As a result 12 interviews were received, which were analyzed using open, axial and selective coding. As a result, it was revealed what moral foundations underlie ingroup solidarity of the Armenians living in Moscow, also the factors that are important for the formation of in-group cohesion were identified, in the opinion of the Armenians living in Moscow, and a typology of ethnic communities was constructed, depending on the value and moral foundations and aims of the ingroup cohesion.
