MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) – More than 125,000 Russian-speaking compatriots have re-settled in Russia since 2007, when the relevant federal program became effective in the country, Director of the Federal Migration Service (FMS) Konstantin Romodanovsky told a meeting of the federal service’s board on Wednesday.
In his words, as of the end of 2012, already 40 Russian regions took part in the program for the promotion of voluntary resettlement of Russian-speaking compatriots living abroad.
“More than 125,000 compatriots resettled in Russia from abroad, mainly from the member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States,” Romodanovsky said.
Solely in the previous year, the Federal Migration Service supported the resettlement of about 63,000 people in Russia, he added.
