MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law, banning blatant breakers of migration rules to enter Russia for ten years. The text of the document was posted on the official Internet portal of legal information.
The law holds that “foreign citizens and stateless persons who did not leave the country during their previous stay in Russia and were staying continuously in Russia for more than 280 days after the expiration of the deadline set for stay in the law” are banned from travelling to Russia for this period of time.
The effective legislation plans a 3-year ban from arriving to Russia to those foreigners who had earlier exceeded 90 days of stay in Russia permitted once in six months and who did not leave the country within a month upon the expiration date of this deadline.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that migration legislation should be tightened in this issue. The head of state noted in an annual state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly in 2013 that the entry in Russia should be banned depending on the severity of an offence from three to ten years for those foreign citizens who breach the rules of stay in Russia.
