NOVO-OGARYOVO. May 6. /TASS/. Ukrainian refugees should be given a possibility to work in Russia without creating problems for the labor market, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.
"People have found themselves in a very difficult situation in their life as they have been forced to get away from the war," Putin said at a meeting with Federal Migration Service Head Konstantin Romodanovsky.
"That is why, we need to think about how to create conditions, under which we surely won’t have problems on the domestic labor market but at the same time we need to find a solution that would allow these people to work. They want after all to earn for their lives themselves and maintain their families," Putin said.
Many Ukrainians are confronted with refusals to employ them in Russia as they lack registration at the place of residence, Putin said.
"There is no such registration and they are not accepted for work. This is a vicious circle," the Russian president said.
"The registration issue is problematic not only for this category," the Federal Migration Service head said.
"This problem also exists for such a category as Russian-speaking persons. We have adopted a law and a mechanism is being created but registration at the place of residence is required for citizens, like for many other categories. We’re resolving this problem," the migration official said.
There are currently 2.5 million Ukrainian nationals in Russia, Romodanovsky said.
"Moreover, over 550,000 people are Ukrainian citizens apparently hiding on the territory of Russia from participation in combat operations in Ukraine," he added.
"As many as 970,000 are persons who have arrived here in an emergency manner and on a mass scale from the territory of the southeast [of Ukraine]. Of this number, more than 500,000 have permission for temporary residence and temporary shelter, which allows them to work in Russia and we don’t require permission documents," he said.
