The institution of asylum in Russia will be modernized
The Federal Migration Service of Russia has proposed to modernize the institution of asylum in the country by acceleration of applications for asylum and adding a new form of protection.
Corresponding changes proposed in the draft law "On asylum in the Russian Federation", it is assumed that the law will combine the two procedures, abolishing the separate consideration of the application for refugee status and temporary shelter. Thus, a foreign citizen will need to file one application, following the consideration of which the staff of the FMS will make the decision on granting a temporary asylum or refugee status on the basis of grounds submitted by the applicant.
