Abstract
The article is devoted to the study of the problem of state control over migration processes that took place on the territory of the Russian Empire in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries. In particular, the key focus is made on the interior and cross-border regions of the Russian Empire. The authors note that during this period, an influx of population from the Muslim states increases. At the same time, despite some attempts of the state to restrict contacts of the Russian Muslims with co-religionists abroad, this was not fully possible. During the period under review, especially at the beginning of the 20th century, in Russia, the number of immigrants from Eastern countries practicing Islam gradually increased. The research presented in this article sheds light on the historical perspective of migration, social risks, and the security problems of internal and cross-border regions.
