Russian FM says migrants' behavior in Europe provokes Islamophobia

The foreign minister says migrants lost their moral and spiritual values

DVORIKI VILLAGE (Vladimir Region), July 22. /TASS/. The behavior of migrants that lost their moral and spiritual values provokes growing Islamophobia in Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.

"As soon as you forget about your origin, moral and spiritual values, you immediately become indifferent to others’ values," Lavrov told the National Educational Youth Forum "Territory of Meanings on the Klyazma."

This is why Europe currently witnesses growing Islamophobia, he noted.

"Migrants are accused of unacceptable behavior, and these accusations are confirmed by facts. However, they are also trying to sweep this problem ‘under the carpet’," the foreign minister continued.

Migrants "are doing what they want because their moral values are lost and they do not want to revive them. They get Islamophobic reactions in response," Lavrov concluded.
