GORKI, June 8. /TASS/. More than 2.3 million people migrate inside Russia annually in search for employment, while two thirds go to the Moscow Region and St. Petersburg, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets told a governmental session on Monday.
"As of today, 2.318 million people move annually in search for jobs. However, unfortunately, the main flows - 66% of all internal migrants - are aimed at Moscow, Moscow Region and St. Petersburg," Golodets said.
The deputy prime minister noted that main investment projects are being implemented in Siberia and in the Far East. It is important to support migration flows to these regions as well, she added.
