MOSCOW, December 28 (Itar-Tass) - Uzbekistan's citizens feature on top of the list of foreign nationals who are most often refused entry into Russia due to legal violations, Alexander Aksyonov, head of the Russian Federal Migration Service’s visa and registration department told journalists on Friday.
According to the Russian migration authorities, about 450,000 foreign nationals who have violated Russian immigration rules have not been allowed to enter Russia since the beginning of the year.
“Uzbeks are in the lead, followed by citizens of Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Moldova, who take second and third places,” Aksyonov said, adding that the statistics were proportionate to the number of foreign nationals from this or that country.
