MOSCOW, June 8 /TASS/. Russian police and the Federal Security Service have torn down illegal migration in several Russian regions, Irina Volk, the Russian Interior Ministry spokeswoman, told TASS on Wednesday.
"Employees of the main criminal investigation department of the Russian Interior Ministry and the Russian Federal Security Service have detained members of an inter-regional international organized group. They are suspected of organizing illegal migration channels in the territory of the Moscow, Smolensk and Bryansk regions," Volk said.
According to her, the suspects also helped citizens of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); Syria and Turkey to illegally stay in Russia in violation of the existing rules of registration, movement and selection of place of residence.
The suspects offered visas, migration cards, registration at place of sojourn, medical certificates and other documents to the illegal migrants for a huge monetary reward. The false documents were sold in a Moscow office, which was equipped as a visa center.
"The group’s leader was a 42-year-old woman from Ukraine. The group comprised another five people, including her husband and son, who was a messenger," Volk said.
Criminal proceedings have been initiated on charges of organization of illegal migration committed by an organized group. Notebooks, stamps of various form, clich·s, stamps, off-the-book notes and other documents were confiscated during search raids in places of residence and in offices located in the territories of Moscow and Smolensk.
