MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) —— There is no Chinese expansion in Russia, those are fears, Russia’s Head of the Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky told deputies of the State Duma during the Government’s Hour session on Wednesday.
“The regions where most citizens of China are concentrated or stay are the Jewish Autonomous Region, the Republic of Kalmykia, the Baikal Territory,” he said.
“As for the total number of people coming from that country, they make about 3.15 percent and are ranked second among the countries with visa regimen,” Romodanovsky said. “They make about 400,000 people, who come to us every year.”
“Honestly speaking, there is no expansion. Those are fears and terrors,” he assured the deputies.
“To a big extent, they are in the Russian Federation legally, but those who are here illegally tend to organize enclaves, to stay in a closed regime and, of course, contacts with this national community are not easy,” he concluded.
