MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. More than 530,000 foreigners who have violated Russian immigration rules have been refused entry into the Russian Federation, Russia’s Federal Migration Service (FMS) Director Konstantin Romodanovsky said on Wednesday.
“The mechanism of banning entry into the country has existed for a little more than a year, and, as for now, these are more than 530,000 foreign citizens who have not been allowed to enter Russia,” he told the FMS Moscow Directorate’s board, noting that the Moscow Directorate’s efforts accounted for 20% of that amount.
Romodanovsky added that over the New Year holidays alone about 20,000 foreign nationals were prohibited from entering Russia for various reasons.
