MOSCOW, September 15. /TASS/. Europe is running a risk of losing its identity if it fails to arrive at common approaches to integration of migrants, Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the international committee at Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, said in an interview with the Vesti FM radio station on Tuesday.
He said in conditions of mass influx of migrant from the Middle East the biggest threat to Europe was not in social or economic problems but "first of all in the sphere of multiculturalism and European identity erosion." "Here, united Europe has failed to find any answers so far," he said, adding that each country of the European Union had its own migrant integration models but there were no common approaches. "It is colossal threat to the future of Europe’s identity," he underscored.
As for other threats - the areas of economics, security, European institutions, "the margin of safety in the European Union is enough to cope with these problems in the foreseeable future," Kosachev said, adding that European countries possessed experience in handling most difficult problems. He said he hoped Europeans would be able to find answers to challenges in the sphere of multiculturalism. "But the most important thing for that is to find the root of the problem that is definitely outside the bigger Europe," he added.
