The paper provides the identification and the analysis of factors that form migration flows from Uzbekistan to Russia. The research goal is to study the factors and define in what way they influence the population’s decision to migrate. An integrated approach allowed to reveal the dominating migration factors so that two waves were allocated in migration stream: ethnic and economic ones. Their quantity and quality characteristics as well as conditions of their origin were identified. The findings are proved by econometric analysis. The research allows to understand nature and features of Uzbek migration and can serve as a basis for taking measures on regulation and control of the above mentioned migration flows and be also used for predictive assessments.
