%X "Russia as a receiving country gains both costs and benefits of international labour migration.
Costs of migration to Russia are tangible and may be threatening to the state, however, the
central question of the paper is if they are considered to pose a danger to Russian national
security in the public discourse of Russia. Although in none of official acts legal labour migration
is fixed as a risk to integrity of a state, i.e. it is excluded from commonly accepted soft
security threats, Russian and European experience suggests that there has been a number
of cases and examples when regular labour migration has constituted a threat to national
security in accordance with the criteria of “soft security threat” given by R.Ullman (interethnic
conflict in Kondopoga, Russia in 2006; migrant riots in France in 2005). Moreover, globalization
puts additional pressure on the nation state contributing to emergence of racist and ultranationalist
sentiments in the informal everyday life and in the political agenda." [author's abstract]
