The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation at a meeting on migration issues: Our country welcomes guests from other countries, but they must understand the rule of law
Today there was a meeting of the board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation on combating illegal migration and suppressing crimes by foreign migrants. This was reported by the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Irina Volk.
The meeting of the board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was chaired by the country's Minister of Internal Affairs, Police General of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev. He said that Russia ranks fourth in the ranking of countries in the world in terms of the number of foreign migrants. Therefore, the issue of illegal behavior of foreigners is very acute in the Russian Federation.
- emphasized in the message of the representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.
The Russian authorities continue to implement the Concept of State Migration Policy and improve the tools and mechanisms for monitoring the stay and behavior of foreign citizens in the country. For example, the requirement for fingerprinting and photographing of all categories of migrants has already been enshrined in law, the head of the department said. This has led to an increase in the volume of biometric data on migrants at the disposal of Russian law enforcement agencies.
Another question is that some of the migrants demonstrate not only a reluctance to integrate into Russian society, but also to follow established legislative norms and rules of behavior. This leads to conflicts with the local population and to the commission of illegal and criminal acts.
