MOSCOW, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Out of 10.4 million foreign nationals staying in Russia to date, some 1.5 million are working on a legal basis, while 3.7 million are in the risk group, exceeding the 90-day term of staying in Russia for foreign citizens, Federal Migration Service Director Konstantin Romodanovsky said in an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Tuesday.
From the beginning of 2013, 545,000 foreign nationals have been banned from entering Russia. “Every day 3,000 to 4,000 foreign citizens are banned from the country. The process is computerized. Our system itself reveals these people and sends information to territorial agencies, whose leadership makes the decision on entry ban,” he added.
