MOSCOW, September 24 (Itar-Tass) Under the bill submitted to the State Duma on Tuesday an immigrant may be deported from Russia upon committing two administrative offences within one year. The bill was proposed by deputies of the Moscow City Duma and edited by Deputy Moscow Mayor for Transport Maksim Liksutov.
The memo says the bill will be instrumental in curbing illegal commercial activity with the use of work of illegal immigrants and will also create the basis for fighting most dangerous violations of traffic rules.
The amendments to the bill, specifically, envisage that two or more administrative offences committed by a foreign citizen or by a stateless person will be reason for the decision that the further stay of that person in Russia is undesirable and for the person’s deportation, and also a reason for annulling or denying the issuing of the permission for temporary residence or the residence permit.
Moscow legislators note that gross systemic violations of traffic rules by immigrants quite often lead to grave, tragic consequences.
According to existing legislation, repeated (twice or more) systemic administrative offences by a foreigner on the Russian territory is so far only the reason for denying entry to Russia and does not permit the foreigner’s expulsion. “The proposed novelty creates the legal basis for expulsion of such foreigners and can also be effective as a preventive measure,” Moscow legislators write.
