MOSCOW, July 16 (Itar-Tass) - Communist candidate in Moscow mayoral election Ivan Melnikov said in case of his victory he will allow foreigners to work in the Russian capital only if they have a labor visa, and introduce a fee for hiring migrants.
"Migrants will only be given jobs if they have labor visa," Melnikov told a news conference here on Tuesday.
Currently, payments to the social fund for employers if they hire Russian citizens make up 28 percent of the sun of insurance premium, whereas there is no such payment for hiring migrants. In case of victory in Moscow mayoral election, Melnikov promised to introduce such a fee; it will be higher for hiring migrants than for hiring Russian citizens.
"It will make at least 30 percent of the sum of insurance premium," he underlined, adding that "the Moscow government currently keeps silent on the problem of migrants."
Melnikov also called for not building any more offices in central Moscow and returning essential kiosks to the city.
"I believe there should be no more new offices within the third ring road. Part of the offices in central Moscow should be relocated to remote districts. This will help the capital resolve its transport problems.
"I will restore the kiosks Muscovites need. If a kiosk is needed, it should be set up. If it has to be given appropriate appearance, let it be revamped," the Communist candidate underlined.
