MOSCOW, June 18 (Itar-Tass) - Russia's Federal Migration Service has barred entry into Russia to more than 100,000 foreigners who have violated migration legislation since the beginning of this year, the FMS press service told Itar-Tass.
"As of today, the number of foreigners who were denied entry into the country reached over 100,000," an FMS official said.
The law barring entry to those who exceed the legal term of stay came into effect from January 2013.
More than 60 percent of violators are citizens of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
The FMS said it has put on file more than three million foreigners who will be denied entry into Russia.
