MOSCOW, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow has registered the growth in crimes committed by migrants, head of the main investigative office of the capital’s investigative committee Vadim Yakovenko said on Wednesday.
“In 2013 foreign citizens and persons without citizenship committed 11,500 crimes in Moscow or over 30 crimes per day. This is a 36.2% increase year-on-year,” he said, adding that migrants from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan topped this list.
“A jump in the gravest crimes committed by foreign citizens evokes special concerns,” Yakovenko said. “Their number increased almost by half.”
In 2012 migrant workers committed one in eight murders and in 2013 one in five such crimes, he said, adding that migrants accounted for 43% of rapes in the capital.
“These crimes pose high social threat and are committed against most vulnerable categories of the population, children and elderly people,” Yakovenko said.
