As the press service of the Tatarstan rais says, 35.700 migrants work in the republic today. Their share is 1.7% of the total number of employees. Foreigners mostly work in such fields as construction, commerce, public catering, transport and the processing industry.
After the fight, Russian Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev held a meeting with the Ministry of Internal Affairs’ panel on counter-actions taken to combat illegal migration and stop rule breaking among foreigners. At the meeting, he paid attention to the behaviour of the country’s guests and tasked with engaging all effort and means to make sure they understand there is something more important than their habits.
