MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) - A group of lawmakers from A Just Russia faction at the State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament submitted a law aimed at improving the procedure to extend/reduce the term of temporary residence for labor migrants in the country. "The bill commits migrants to leave Russia within five days after the termination of labor contract /for any reason/," Mikhail Serdyuk, one of the authors of the initiative, told Itar-Tass, "our country needs a labor force, but million-strong hordes of unemployed foreigners pose a serious threat to the society."
World experience shows that "many European countries have irrecoverably lost their chance to resolve the problem. Russia should not repeat this mistake," he warned.
The city migration service says only 550,000 of an estimated 1.7 million migrants in Moscow have official registration and work permits.
