UNITED NATIONS, October 5 (Itar-Tass) - Over the past three years a total of 3.5 million migrants have been legalized in Russia, the chief of the Federal Migration Service, Konstantin Romodanovsky, said on Friday. The sale of employment licenses and permits to foreign nationals raised 16.2 billion roubles for the state budget.

At the same time Romodanovsky said punitive measures against those who abuse migration laws were very effective.

“If some people continue to violate our laws and rules, we take other measures, rather mild ones, I believe. We suspend their right to re-enter Russia for three years after the moment they leave the country,” he said. Since the beginning of this year this measure has been applied to 260,000 people.

“I believe that this mechanism will remain as effective,” Romodanovsky said.

The chief of Russia’s Federal Migration Service is at the United Nations for a high-level dialogue on the issue of international migration.
