KISLOVODSK, January 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called for strengthening punishment and even introducing criminal penalties for violation of migration rules.
He said people in the Stavropol Territory are worried by a large number of young people from the North Caucasus to study in local higher educational institutions.
“There are several problems there. First, the local authorities must watch the situation. Second, different branches of higher educational institutions and local higher educational institutions should not admit all and everyone just to fill in all vacancies and get the money, letting them hang around and do nothing but use their status of students to be there,” Putin said at the Forum of the Peoples of South Russia on Monday, January 23.
He stressed that this is true not only of the Stavropol Territory but also of other Russian regions. “Compliance with effective laws must be watched closely, and maybe some things can be strengthened all the way to criminal penalties,” the prime minister said.
“There must be an additional systemic adjustment to avoid problems both for those who come and for those who live there,” he said.
Putin urged migrants to refrain from creating mono-ethnic neighbourhoods.
“In the modern world when people get into such mono-ethnic environment, they try to get out of there because they suck in, limit and prevent from developing,” Putin said.
“It would be better to refrain from creating such mono-ethnic neighbourhoods. A person should feel free and equal among equal only if he can realize his best qualities,” Putin said.
“When people go to another region or country and live together, there is generally nothing about that, but when this turns into closed mono-structures, it is bad for both the local population and for the people who live there,” he said.
