MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Migrants account for only a few percent of the total number of crimes in Russia, and most of them are connected with forged documents, Konstantin Romodanovsky, the director of the Federal Migration Service, said in the questions-and-answers session in the Federation Council upper house of parliament on Wednesday.
“There was a slight increase in the crime incidence during the crisis, and crimes committed by foreign citizens made up 3.6 percent of the total number of solved crimes. This index is 3.4 percent now,” he said. He noted that Russian citizens are responsible for the biggest number of crimes.
“A much larger number of crimes is, naturally, committed by foreigners in big cities. For instance, in Moscow this index is 18.6 percent and in the Moscow region 9.2 percent of the total number of solved crimes,” Romodanovsky said.
He stressed that not all these crimes involve violence or encroachment on property. “I should say 30 percent of the crimes committed by foreigners involve the use of forged documents,” the head of the Federal Migration Service noted.
