The article is devoted to migration and refugees in Europe, deals with the problems of misunderstanding between the refugees and the recipient population, the failed policy of multiculturalism. The PEGIDA movement (patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West) not only blames the immigrants for the problems of the European society, but also attempts to make the life of migrants unbearable. The European government makes every effort to maintain intercultural interaction, but the opinion of Europeans on the refugees and migrants and their attitude is quite different. Most of the inhabitants of Europe, have expressed their opposition to the flow of migrants to their country, explaining that with the additional expenditure of taxpayers and the threat of a humanitarian disaster, and at the same time, they have compassion for people who are fleeing from the war and need help.
