The administrative regulations on the extradition of the Russian Ministry of the Interior to a residence permit in the Russian Federation for foreign citizens have been approved (Order No. 846 of the Russian Interior Ministry of 09.11.2017).

According to the regulations, the term for the provision of public services is, in particular:
