The spread of Islam is rampant in Russia. Tens of thousands gather to worship in the center of Moscow which is now the largest Muslim city in Europe.
Russia has 4 million migrants, many living in Moscow. The country's migration policy includes plans to attract up to 10 million migrants to offset the country's declining population. They flood into Russia through scams and the promise of well-paying jobs, hoping to support their families back home.
