MOSCOW, December 24 /TASS/. Russian Federal Migration Service Chief Konstantin Romodanovsky said on Wednesday that he was against any revision of the migration policy in case of growing unemployment in Russia.

“We have a migration policy concept described by the president. We should decide whether we are against using foreign workforce or not. If we are against it, then visas should be introduced. But we are moving in a totally different and justified direction towards expansion and creation of the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union,” Romodanovsky said in an interview aired by the Rossiya 24 TV news channel.

“The creation of these bodies will lead to free movement of foreign workforce. That is why we have been moving and will, hopefully, move towards the concept of a migration policy which has the following priorities: economy, demography and rule of law,” the FMS chief said.

Earlier, Ella Pamfilova, the human rights ombudsman under the Russian president, suggested that Russia should revise its migration policy if unemployment started growing in order to vacate job places for Russians.
