The process is: Germany is preparing for the reception of new arrivals

Despite the fact that the world's media are not actively illuminate the problem of the migration crisis in Europe, the refugees remain at the epicenter of attention of the European community. In this respect, Germany is different, where the number of refugees in recent years has reached a record high, and where the humanitarian aspects are an important factor in domestic and foreign policy. Migration crisis, which has affected European countries, many of the engaged international organizations is presented as a consequence of the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria. While the Syrians are only a part of all internally displaced persons - almost 400 thousand. human.

Since 2013-2016-till and including the year, according to statistics from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, was filed 1.552.051 application for asylum in the Federal Republic of Germany. In the 2015 890, the country adopted a thousand. Refugees and in 2016, almost 600 thousand.

This number does not include applications submitted to immigrate to Germany for reasons other than those required for refugee status. On the other hand, it includes a number of those who submitted applications, or not approved, or to leave Germany during / after reviewing their cases.

In the first quarter 2017-year, according to the same department, it was filed 60.157 applications for refugee status. In the first three countries, Syria (about 12 thousand. Applications), Afghanistan (about 5.5 thousand. Applications), and Iraq (about 5 thousand. Applications). Also, a significant number of applications were submitted by the Iranians, Eritreans and Albanians.

If we assume that the flow of refugees will remain more or less unchanged for the year 2017 in Germany will arrive approximately one third of the number of arrivals in 2016 year and about half of the profit for the year 2015. Meanwhile, in Germany, the refugees continue to arrive, the majority of whom are immigrants from Muslim countries. If before the refugees resettled, mostly in western Germany, where prominent pro-Islamic sentiments, now refugees find shelter in the eastern lands. For example, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Berlin are regions that are actively taking refugees. In the cities of Leipzig and Magdeburg in East Berlin now concentrated many people from the Middle East and Afghanistan. In Leipzig, and in particular, a significant number of Chechen refugees living in its suburbs. Also, a considerable amount of Chechens and other people from the North Caucasus living in the state of Brandenburg.

It is noteworthy that, not only the picture of the resettlement of refugees. Ethno-demographic indicators in the lands of eastern Germany has become a hot topic for discussion in the German society. Many local experts believe that the authorities conduct a deliberate policy to change the demographic situation in the east of the country, settled in these regions, refugees from the Islamic countries, which, as the experience of the western lands, are not inclined to adapt. It is known that in 1990-x in Germany were many immigrants from Bosnia, Albania, Southern Serbia, where concentrated a significant number of Muslims, Kosovo and Macedonian Muslims, Kurds, Arabs from Iraq, Turks, Chechens and other ethnic groups. Since then, despite the huge public expenditure, adaptation of refugees and internally displaced persons programs and have not given tangible results. Now the authorities are trying to artificially increase the number of aging eastern regions new ethnic elements, without considering the peculiarities of the local population and visitors.

Our sources in Germany report that in the center of the temporary accommodation of refugees at the former Tempelhof airport (Tempelhof) recently began intensive work on the construction of "small town for refugees." Until recently, people were placed at the airport, which according to the plan provided for after the close, was to become a museum. Some part of the territory adjacent to the building was already fenced. In the photographs, attached to the article, it is fenced white fence. This area although shielded, but almost never used. In connection with the above developments, it added even more territory, which has an additional fence of metal (silver) color. On the day of this writing, the number of cabins, houses (hereinafter: the cab-house) has already significantly exceeded one hundred. Work continues, and it is unknown how many of them will end up. But we can say with certainty that the old walled area would be used minimally. There are only two types of temporary structures.

Given that in the Tempelhof district is not currently refugees left, and that our observers were unable to find a single open office building, no staff other than watchmen and guards, and, if we assume that our assumption about the flow on 2017-th year is true, the question arises: who are building the "city" cab-houses?

According to the official website of the Federal Land of Berlin, about 30-planned and settlements of a similar type. But on this page is the number of cab-houses on each "town" is significantly lower than our sources considered in Tempelhof. Instead 64 units identified in the source, the number has already exceeded this figure more than doubled in the unfinished "small town".

By our hands got one version of the Cub House of the pilot project. According to him, as well as the official website of Berlin, in a house may contain from x to 4-8-and refugees. As the "town" has not yet been completed, as well as a huge area adjacent to the "town" and to the building of the old airport, it remains almost untouched, the complete picture is not visible. Note that the "town" is intended for temporary residence, therefore, can not reflect a particular number of expected refugees.

Questions about the "small towns" temporary stay and start asking the local media, mainly focusing on the financial aspect, as unnecessary costs. We are interested in and the possibility of training to new flows of refugees of this scale, which calculated "towns". Berlin is considered one of the poorest federal German states with large debts. If a new flow of refugees is not a huge number, and is not expected, why invest so many resources?

The situation in the Middle East remains extremely difficult. Dangerous trends outlined in Turkey, where are the ethnic cleansing of Kurds. They are from the southeast are moving into the western regions of the country, as many did in Europe. In addition, against Iran, a new geopolitical axis, which in the future could destabilize the situation in the Islamic Republic, which, in turn, will worsen the humanitarian situation in the region. Disturbing events occur and the Balkans. Albanian factor again becomes a tool in the hands of Western politicians, which means that the situation in Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia could deteriorate at any time. It seems that Germany is ready for the new refugee flows. The only question in time.
