MIA suggests improving control over entry and stay of immigrants
Control over entry and stay of immigrants in Russia should be improved, according to Olga Kirillova, the Head of the Main Directorate for Migration of the MIA of the Russian Federation.
“Foreign citizens can entry and exit Russia given they comply with the law in effect. Enforcement of the passed laws for combating illegal immigration and illegal employment of immigrants improved the state of immigration affairs. At the same time, we should understand who visits our country and where they come from. This means control over entry and stay of foreigners in Russia should be improved,” she said.
The government has the most necessary instruments for combating illegal immigration, according to Kirillova. Consolidation of efforts and coordination of activities of all the interested agencies will further promote it.
A law prohibiting foreigners who broke the migration law numerous times from entering the country was passed in 2015, Kirillova pointed out. “1.7 million foreign citizens were prohibited from entering Russia as the result,” she said.
“State agencies were able to more easily prosecute and punish (up to deportation and readmission) more foreign citizens who committed latent and continuing administrative offences without being noticed by police over that last 2 years,” Kirillova said.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
