The growth of Chinese communities makes the study of their interaction with their Russian surroundings important and relevant. Despite the presence of a number of unfavorable factors, Chinese migrants by and large do adapt rather well to the Russian reality.

Still, Russian citizens positively assess the prospects of temporary employment of Chinese migrants, which is likely to be expanding in the near future.
