VLADIVOSTOK, September 4. /TASS/. The falling rouble has triggered an exodus of guest workers from Russia, which is already causing great problems to many businesses, presidential business rights ombudsman Boris Titov told TASS on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum on Friday.

"The outflow of migrants from Russia is a serious problem for Russian businesses. It is the basic specialists resident in other CIS countries that are the first to leave," Titov said.

Foreign nationals no longer see any sense in having jobs in Russia, because their remuneration in the currency equivalent has slumped.

Also, he remarked that the mandatory examination in the Russian language for labor migrants breeds corruption.

"Migration legislation problems emerged over the Russian language examinations. This is a corruption-breeding sphere, because everybody buys examination certificates. A Chinese migrant who does a three-month odd job at a construction site in Chita may not know Russian. It is unnecessary. Yet the requirement is effective and the employer buys a certificate for him," Titov said.
