Suspension of quotas for foreign workers from Kyrgyzstan
According to Aliyasbek Alymkulov, the minister of Migration, Labor and Youth of Kyrgyz Republic, Russia intends to abolish quotas for foreign workers from Kyrgyzstan. Under the new agreement between the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic everyone will be able to leave for work in Russia, and all the necessary documents will be available even in Kyrgyzstan, said Aliyasbek Alymkulov at the meeting with journalists
The Minister particularly focused media attention on the fact that the Kyrgyz authorities have a positive attitude to the decision of the Russian government because these steps will reduce illegal migration flows, and the entry of the Republic into the Customs Union and the consequent inclusion in common economic space will make it possible to completely solve the problem of foreign workers.
According to the Federal Migration Service, there are seven million citizens of the former Soviet republics living illegally in Russia nowadays, and nearly one million of them are citizens of Kyrgyzstan.
