“As of today, more than 990,000 foreign nationals have been banned from entering the country,” Romodanovsky said.
Most of these foreigners come from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), including Uzbekistan (40%), Tajikistan (up to 20%), Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan, the official said.
The system to regulate the flow of migrants is now working at full capacity and has produced good results, he added.
In an effort to improve control over migration, Russia introduces regulations that are due to come into force on January 1, 2015 for citizens of CIS countries to cross the Russian border only with foreign passports (except for Customs Union states - Belarus, Kazakhstan).
Earlier this month, Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said that the citizens of the former Soviet states account for most of the crimes committed on the territory of Russia.
