MOSCOW, January 5 (Itar-Tass) — President Vladimir Putin has signed the federal law, “On Making Amendments to the Federal Law ‘On Refugees’”, according to a report placed on the Kremlin website on Saturday.
The federal law was approved by the State Duma on December 18, 2012 and passed by the Federal Council on December 26, 2012.
The law is designed to improve Russian legislation in the field of migration and finalise details on the legal status of a refugee.
The amendments imply that a request to recognise refugee on the territory of the Russian Federation and a statement on granting temporary refuge on the territory of the Russian Federation cannot be given to foreign citizens in the form of electronic document. In addition, limitations are placed on issuing a certificate to consider a request on refugee status on the territory of the Russian Federation in essence, a travel document for the departure of a person, who is recognised refugee, and family members outside the territory of Russia, as well as a certificate to grant temporary refuge on the territory of the Russian Federation in the form of electronic document.
