MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Foreigners and residents of other Russian regions are responsible for 25% of crimes committed in the Moscow region, regional police chief Nikolai Golovkin told reporters on Sunday.
“This is the highest indicator in the country,” he said. “More than 96,000 crimes have been recorded, and over 52,000 of them have been solved. More than 16,000 crimes were perpetrated by people from other Russian regions and almost 9,500 by foreigners,” he said.
“There is latent crime, as well. The aggregate indicator may be twice larger,” he said.
Migrants commit more robberies and rapes. They also commit assaults and murders, he said.
