No Former Homeland (2021-2022)
There are hundreds and possibly thousands of students from Afghanistan at Moscow universities. They came to Russia from a country ruled by a weak but, more or less, democratic government. However, in 2021, radicals from the Taliban* seized power. Jobs disappeared in Afghanistan, borders closed. For cooperation with the former authorities, one may threaten death.
The students had nowhere to go back to. But not everyone is ready to integrate into Russian society either.
