MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Migration Service (FMS) of Russia denied a report that 150 illegal migrants had been detected at the construction site of the new terminal of Pulkovo airport in St Petersburg. Only one foreigner was detained for violation of migration laws, the FMS stated.
The department on transport of the North Western Federal District told Itar-Tass earlier that some 150 citizens of near-abroad countries lacking registration certificates and work permits were detected at the construction site of the new terminal of Pulkovo airport on Tuesday. The department stated all of them faced administrative responsibility for illegal work and violation of the regime of the stay on Russian territory.
“The FMS indeed carried out a raid on the territory of the Pulkovo airport jointly with police and the public prosecutor’s office. Over 200 foreign citizens were subjected to checks and only one of them was detained for violating migration laws. His expulsion from Russia is considered,” Zalina Kornilova, the FMS spokesperson, told Itar-Tass. It is only after a thorough check that a person can be accused of an illegal stay on Russian territory, she said.
