Criminal Sentences for Illegal Immigrants and Their Employers

Criminal Sentences for Illegal Immigrants and Their Employers
Illegal immigrants to Russia often come from the Caucasus

As the presidential race gradually speeds up, the Government has turned its eye on the problem of illegal immigration. This is one of the painful topics in Russian society today. Following the demise of the Soviet Union, in the absense of job opportunities in regions and former Soviet republics, the citizens thereof flocked to large Russian cities, primarily St. Petersburg and Moscow, for better income. Unfortunately, the situation has been getting out of hand with the migration system being continuously abused by both migrants and their employers. You can read more about the situation surrounding the illegal immigration in our article.

      In summary, these are suggestions that may help to regulate the influx of illegal immigrants:


  •     criminal sentence for those who illegally contract the migrants for work;

  •     criminal sentence for those who own and rent out "rubber flats";

  •     a 5 to 10 years ban for "serial offenders", i.e. immigrants who continue coming to Russia illegally, despite being officially prohibited from doing so;

  •     restrictions for Russian domestic migration, to alleviate a heavy burden on the infrastructure of large cities.



Although sensible and necessary, these measures are regarded by experts as a mere attempt to appease the part of electorate who have recently been disappointed with the migration policies in Russia. Non-Slavic faces are often described as a turn-off for tourists, and even Russians are apprehensive of seeing so many dark-skinned faces around them.

      The latter point concerning restrictions for migration between the cities harks back to the Soviet system of working in the place of registration. In the present conditions this may actually serve to increase the illegal immigration, as the regions often simply cannot provide enough of either workplaces, or money.
