MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a virtual meeting of the Russian Security Council on Wednesday, October 19, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.
"It’s planned to consider issues related to the neutralization of threats to national security in the migration area and the regulation of migration processes in the interests of the socio-economic development of the country and socio-political stability," the Kremlin said in a statement.
Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev is set to deliver a report, the Kremlin said. In August, he said that members of the commission on improving the government’s migration policy had been preparing for such a meeting for more than six months and done a lot of work.
The last meeting of an expanded Security Council was held in May. Putin routinely, as a rule, once a week, holds current-affairs meetings with the Security Council’s permanent members.
