MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Migration Service (FMS) calls to ban foreigners who exceeded their permitted term of stay for more than a year from entering this country, migration service’s chief Konstantin Romodanovsky told reporters on Thursday.
“We are quite concerned over the so-called risk group (those who exceeded 90-day term of stay in this country). Their numbers are on the decline, but about four million people exceed the legal term of stay in Russia and naturally they may be subject to a possible entry ban,” Romodanovsky said.
He said more than 860,000 people were staying in Russia for more than a year.
“So, people take our legislation extremely negligently. We are working with lawmakers to ban those who breached their term of stay for more than a year from arriving in the country for ten years,” he said, noting that this law would be of practical and preventive importance for citizens of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Moldova, making a majority of those breaking this rule.
More than 1.3 million foreign citizens are forbidden from arriving in Russia for different offences, the migration service’s press service said on Thursday.
