Enter visas to Russia for citizens of Central Asia offered to introduce

The social situation in the Central Asian republics is unstable, the migration regime with them must be strengthened for the sake of the security of Russian citizens. This was reported by Russian media with reference to the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security Franz Klintsevich.

He commented on the FSB report on the detention of two immigrants from Central Asia, who were preparing terrorist attacks in Moscow and the Moscow region. According to the service, the detainees belong to the «Islamic State» terrorist group banned in Russia, they have contacts with recruiters and instructions on committing crimes of a terrorist nature.

Foci of social tension have been created in the Central Asian republics. It is necessary, and I have been talking about this for a long time, to introduce visas and more strict control at the border.

Franz Klintsevich

The senator admitted that the possible introduction of a visa regime would hurt labor migrants from this region, because for them work in Russia is often the only way to earn money. «But our country, our state will protect its citizens, and for this reason will go to any losses,» the parliamentarian said.
