MOSCOW, August 3 (Itar-Tass) — Illegal migrants commit one out of every six crimes in Moscow, the city's Prosecutor Sergei Kudeneyev said.
The number of migrants is rising, and the number of migration legislation violations has increased, Kudeneyev told the meeting of the Moscow prosecutor's office, which summed up the results of the work for the first half of this year.
Foreigners commit one out of every six registered crimes, one out of every three rapes and one out of every six robberies, he said.
Illegal migration constitutes threat to the entire Moscow region and worsens the criminal situation, he noted.
The prosecutor warned his subordinates about their personal responsibility for failure to organize proper control over the migration legislation observance.
Over the past six months, the number of registered crimes increased by 0.7 percent, Kudeneyev said.
The number of theft cases increased by four percent. Thefts account for more than half of all the registered crimes. The number of fraud cases also rose by 14 percent.
At the same time, the number of murders and cases of intentional infliction of bodily harm that caused death decreased by 12 and 15 percent, and the number of rapes decreased by almost 20 percent, the prosecutor said.
