MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russian authorities should tighten up requirements to the professional qualifications of migrants seeking jobs in this country, Anatoly Vyborny, a member of the Duma committee for security and counteraction to corruption said Friday.
People coming to Russia quite frequently do not even have the general school certificates and have a poor command of the Russian language, he said.
“This means they have problems finding jobs,” Vyborny said. “Hence they in the street and commit various offenses because the latter offer a means of earning without any intellectual activity.”
“It’s time we introduced we set forth the requirements for the minimum acceptable general and professional education so as to ensure that the arriving people have a definite level of knowledge enabling them to live and work in Russia,” he said.
Also Vyborny believes it is necessary to continue introducing changes in the laws on the migration.
“It’s important to append the laws with provisions that will forbid a reentry of the Russian territory for the people who encroach on migration regulations or commit administrative and/or criminal offenses,” he said.
According to Vyborny, society recognizes today that it is impossible to continue living in the current manner any longer.
“Even in Moscow, one can easily notice that a huge percentage of crimes is committed by migrants and this means that clear and unambiguous rules of the game should be set forth,” he said.
