Any society comprised of different elements seeks integration, mutual understanding and consensus among the people who live within the boundaries of the country. Recent speeches by A. Merkel, D. Cameron, D. Medvedev and V. Putin about the policy of multiculturalism have once again proven that different countries are facing issues related migration. There is no doubt that these problems are of great relevance to our country, since public opinion towards migrants arriving in Russia is closely related to attitudes towards the old diasporic groups (Armenians, Georgians, and Azerbaijanis who have lived in the Russian Federation for a long time) and can be extrapolated to other nationalities.

Turkey’s traditional image as a NATO’s stronghold in the Eastern Mediterranean and as a loyal U.S. ally in the volatile Middle East region has long established itself in the eyes of politicians and commentators. However, dramatic changes in the world and in Turkey itself led to the transformation of the public consciousness of the Turks to a change in domestic political sentiment and, consequently, to a change in the vector of the country’s foreign policy. An important feature of these changes is their mutual influence: foreign policy events had an impact on the public sentiments in the country, while sentiments, change in values and priorities, in turn, forced the rulers to look for the country’s new place in the region and the world.
