The Federal Migration Service (FRM) of Russia is to begin after January 8 inspecting so-called “rubber apartments” [where large numbers of migrant worker live in often unhygienic and overcrowded environments], Aleksandr Aksyonov, head of the FMS registration and passport service, told reporters on Friday.
