MOSCOW, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - Fines for delinquent migrants are increased as of Friday in Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as in the Moscow and Leningrad Regions, according to the press service of the Federal Migration Service (FMS) reported. If a foreigner violates in these regions the requirements of entry, stay in Russia, the country’s migration registration rules or fails to comply with the order of the declared purpose of stay, he could face a fine of 7,000 rubles and administrative expulsion.
Similar violations in other Russian regions are still punishable by a fine of up to 5,000 rubles. According to the new rules, a migrant will not be able to avoid expulsion for the violation of the rues of entry in Russia or employment (the formerly applied rules provided for either a fine or expulsion).
The fines for illegal employment of migrant workers for officials will amount up to 70,000 rubles (in other Russian regions - up to 50,000 rubles). The fines for legal entities will amount up to 1 million rubles (in other Russian regions - up to 800,000 rubles).
The corresponding federal law was passed by the State Duma on July 5, 2013 and approved by the Federation Council on July 10, 2013. President Vladimir Putin on July 26 signed the Federal Law “On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation for Improving Migration Legislation and Responsibility for its Violation.”
FMS experts believe that responsibility for illegal migration is toughened because Moscow, the Moscow Region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region face the largest migration inflow.
