MOSCOW, March 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Konstantin Romodanovsky, head of the Federal Migration Service (FMS) of Russia, signed a decree on setting up directorates of the FMS in Crimea and in Simferopol. The drawing up of some 50,000 passports is in progress and 15,000 passports have already been drawn up and issued, a staffer in the service’s press office told ltar-Tass.
The FMS directorates have been set up in the Republic of Crimea and in the city of Sevastopol. Acting heads of the directorates have been appointed, said the source.
The head of the FMS, said the source, had visited the Republic of Crimea the other day and had meetings with leaders of the republic and of its law enforcement bodies. Romodanovsky also met with local people and listened to them talking about the difficulties they meet with.
On the basis of the meetings with local people, he gave instructions to intensify the work, redistribute the number of staffers according to the workload and double the number of personnel dispatched to the regions.
Officials in the newly formed units of FMS directorates will be tested for the knowledge of migration laws of the Russian Federation.
“Issuing passports to the entire population is a challenging task, as this is 2 million people. This task will be fulfilled,” Romodanovsky said. “Three months are assigned to fulfill the task and this means intensive work for the FMS,” he said.
