Migration inflow to Russia in January-April 2019 updated ten-year maximum. It is reported RIA Novosti with reference to the research of the Gaidar Institute and the Ranepa.
So, less than half a year in Russia came to 98 thousand foreigners. According to the authors of the report, the dynamics of the number of arrivals of migrants “looks abnormal”.
Migration increased sharply in the early months of 2019, from 57.1 thousand people in January-April 2018 up to 98 thousand in January-April of 2019, the study said.
According to experts, the reason for such rapid growth could be an undercount of migrants in 2018. Also a sharp change in the indicator may be due to a new correction technique of migration.
Earlier it was reported that the influx of migrants who remain in Russia for the long term, in 2018 fell to a minimum since the collapse of the Soviet Union. For the year, an increase of only 125 thousand people.
