GENEVA, April 19. /TASS/. Some 11.9 million migrants are living in Russia, third country in the migration trend list worldwide, published by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on Tuesday.
According to the IOM report, "in 2015, the number of international migrants worldwide - people residing in a country other than their country of birth - was the highest ever recorded, at 244 million (up from 232 million in 2013)."
"Germany became the second most popular destination for international migrants globally (in absolute numbers), following the United States and ahead of Russia, with an estimated 12 million foreign-born people living in the country in 2015 (compared to 46.6 million in the US and 11.9 million in Russia)," the IOM said.
"The year 2015 saw the highest levels of forced displacement globally recorded since World War II, with a dramatic increase in the number of refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people across various regions of the world - from Africa to the Middle East and South Asia," the report said.
