MOSCOW, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Entrance to Russia had been banned for more than 405,000 foreigners who had violated Russian laws since the start of the year, head of the Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky told a Moscow State University student lecture on Friday.
“We can already say this way is much more effective than administrative expulsion of a foreigner,” Romodanovsky said, adding that access to Russia was being closed for almost 3,000 illegal migrants daily, equal to more than 405,000 since the year began.
But “the service also makes reverse decisions for humanitarian reasons”, for instance in order not to split families, Romodanovsky added.
