MOSCOW, October 17 (Itar-Tass) - Over 60 foreign work migrants who used to work at a vegetable store base in the town of Dolgoprudnyi near Moscow have been deported from Russia after the Federal Migration Service carried out a raid on the base, a Federal Migration Service (FMS) source said on Thursday.
"The FMS employees checked the work conditions at the vegetable store base in the town of Dolgoprudnyi near Moscow on October 16 where over 1,500 workers, including foreigners, used to work. The inspection revealed that 63 foreigners did not have a work permit while 19 of them had been staying in Russia illegally,” the Russian Federal Migration Service said. The town court of Dolgoprudnyi imposed fines on all the 63 foreign nationals who were later expelled from Russia. Besides, an administrative investigation was launched against the leaseholder on charges of illegally hiring foreign nationals or persons without citizenship.
