MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Migration Service (FMS) said it was not planning to build camps for immigrants.
“We seek to build special facilities for immigrants and not camps, which are now functioning in Moscow,” the agency reported.
Earlier, mass media made public information saying the Federal Migration Service created camps for immigrants.
“For several years we’ve been building special facilities for immigrants, who violated law and wait for being expelling. At the moment over 20 special facilities have been built in Russian regions,” the agency reported.
“We’re planning that such facilities will function in every region,” it said.
From January 1, 2014 the Federal Migration Service will have the powers to have special facilities until immigrants, who violated Russian law, stay in them and in temporary detention facilities, which are in competence of the Interior Ministry.
