Migration issues were transferred to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia (MVD) a year ago
It should be recalled that in 2016 the President of the Russian Federation signed a decree on the establishment of the Main Directorate for Migration (GUVM MVD), as well as relevant units in all territorial bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.
In 2016, the Interior Ministry's GUVM provided more than 71 million government services in the field of migration.
Due to the fact that the main role in countering illegal migration belongs to the bodies of internal affairs, the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia has expanded cooperation with law enforcement agencies in multilateral international formats.
