More than two million foreigners arrived in Russia to work with the beginning of the year. The statistics of the border service of the FSB of Russia published on the website of the Unified interdepartmental information-statistical system (EMISS).

So, of the 15 million arrivals into the country in the first half of the 2.4 million foreigners indicated the purpose of the trip work. Most of the labour migrants arrived from Uzbekistan (918 thousand), Tajikistan (523,9 thousand), Kyrgyzstan (265 thousand) and Ukraine (164,6 thousand).

In addition, for work in Russia for the period came to 50.2 thousand foreigners from China, 10.8 thousand from Germany, 10.2 thousand from Turkey, 4.3 thousand from the UK and 3.7 thousand from the United States.

As told the head of the laboratory of economy of the population of economic faculty of Moscow state University Olga Chudinovskikh, still the list of objectives enter Russia, which fixed the FSB until 2019, “obsolete” due to the lack of it in the column about work and study. In its opinion, the inclusion in the list of goals will improve the quality of statistical information of the FSB, says owned by Grigory Berezkin RBC.

However, Chudinovskikh noted that the data of the FSB to account for labor migration is “extremely vulnerable” because if the foreign citizen lives in the border zone and goes to work in Russia several times within a year, he again and again will be counted as a new migrant worker.
