MOSCOW, January 17. /TASS/. Ukrainian citizens, who have applied in Russia for the status of refugees, may be working in Russia without additional permissions, head of the Russian Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky said in an interview with the Vesti v Subbotu (News on Saturday) television programme.
“Those who came to us in emergency, applied for the status of temporary shelter, may be working without whatever permissions, and we shall offer our assistance during their stay in the Russian Federation,” he said.
Ukraine’s other citizens will have to undergo the procedures necessary for those arriving from any other CIS country.
“In the complicated situation in Ukraine, we have postponed the requirement for Ukrainian citizens to be arriving here with foreign passports; they may come here having their national passports, but for their staying here, for working here now they will have to buy patents,” the official said.
