The loss in the competition

Reader comment on item: Muslim Russia?

Submitted by PermReader (Russia), Oct 22, 2013 at 11:35

The Russian problems are the loss in labouring ethnic competition:the Asiatics work more,the Caucassians are more successful in business. Though the Russian Muslims are of the traditional kind and are quite secular,they are more religious than the majority of the ethnic Russians so the latter feel the pressure of the alien religion. As usual for the loss in competition the Russians blame the migrants and the state.
