MOSCOW, December 3 (Itar-Tass) — Head of Russia’s Migration Service /FMS/ Konstantin Romadanovsky did not rule out that by 2015 all labour migrants will have to take the Russian language examination.
Romadanovsky said that an exception may be possible only for high qualified employees from abroad.
“Now, our local branches cooperate with 1,700 organisations and associations of foreign citizens.”
“In several regions, we have prevented some conflicts,” he told the State Duma hearings on the national policy. “An important aspect of our work is passing information on migration legislation, and organisation of the Russian language courses.”
“The Russian language is a basic element in adaptation and integration of the migrants,” Romadanovsky said.
