The current state of the Armenian Diaspora in Russia testifies to the presence in it of some divergent tendencies: on the one hand, this is the historically inherent desire of the Armenian Diaspora to thoroughly integrate into the social and economic life of Russia; and on the other hand, this is a certain orientations for repatriation to the homeland in the context of current western sanctions against Russia and a special military operation in Ukraine. In order to study the degree of integration of the Armenian Diaspora in to Russian society and identify a potential repatriation resource among the Armenian migrants, a comparative sociological survey was conducted in Russia and in Armenia. In the Russian Federation, the sociological survey among the Armenian migrants was conducted by the scientists of the Institute of Demographic Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the most Armenian-populated communities in Moscow, and in the Stavropol and Krasnodar regions. In Armenia, the sociological survey among the migrant families was conducted by the scientists of the Institute of Philosophy, Sociology and Law of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia in the several cities of the republic. The main results of comparative sociological surveys conducted within the framework of the joint academic project are presented in this article in the form of a predictive analysis of the current situation.
