Sergei Mironov demands visa regime with Central Asian countries

The leader of Just Russia — For Truth party, Sergei Mironov, proposes to introduce a temporary visa regime with the countries of Central Asia. Official website of the political organization says.

The statement clarifies that there are several reasons for this. «The point is not only that labor migration has become a destabilizing criminogenic factor. We must also minimize the possibility of penetration of new strains of coronavirus into Russia,» Sergei Mironov believes.

According to him, the Russians must protect their economies fromlow-wage workforce that slows down its development. The politician believes that the low-wage workforce corrupts business, saves money on wage increase, retraining of workers and upgrading equipment.

«The Moscow authorities correctly formulated this problem: two or three times fewer people should work at construction sites, they should build two or three times faster and receive three times more. This approach should be extended to other regions and sectors of the economy, so the migration policy should be toughened,» he said.
