MOSCOW, November 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin plans to toughen control of migrants, who arrive in Moscow from regions by buses.
“We have very many people, I mean dozens of thousands, who arrive every day by regional buses; they are arriving from the south, from the north, from anywhere,” he said on Thursday as together with Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev he visited a new building of a police station in the Akademichesky district of Moscow. “It is impossible to control them and to undertake anything, as it is a huge flow of people.”
He asked the president to issue his orders regarding the issue, “so that we could work jointly with our colleagues in this sphere.”
During the meeting, Sobyanin reported that there are about 400,000 migrants in Moscow. They are working migrants, where 200,000 are registered officially and about 200,000 work illegally in the city.
“We had a meeting with the Federal Migration Service, worked out an action plan, but I believe we have to act tougher, and should it be necessary, to change the federal legislation to react effectively,” Sobyanin said.
