MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. The Russian government is working on a bill that would regulate entry, exit and residence of foreigners, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday.
He said at a Security Council meeting on migration policy that some issues in this area are systemic in nature and an integrated approach is needed to address them.
"So, a new comprehensive bill is being prepared, which should regulate the conditions for the entry, exit and stay of foreigners in our country," he said.
Medvedev said the bill isn’t only about upgrading the equipment used by migration services, "but also about preventing serious threats caused by the current situation."
"The control of entry, the rules regarding the residence of migrants on the territory of our country are an integral part of the security regime on our state’s soil. We are working in a completely different environment than a few years ago, and this must be kept in mind," the official said.
