Russia to strict migration control for social security: PM


19:23, May 21, 2013

MOSCOW, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Russia needs a system to monitor and control the flow of migrant workers to secure social stability, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview released on Tuesday.

"We need to know who comes to us," Medvedev told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper, adding it is "sanitary-epidemiological, economic, as well as security issue."

Admitting Russia needs "additional manpower," the prime minister noted that "all newcomers must respect our rules, our laws, traditions and have a good command of the Russian language."

In that case, the most important thing was to create a system that would make it possible to monitor the migration processes, which was being undertaken, he said.

Medvedev also insisted that the Russian economy is decent despite complicated global economic situation and obsolete structure of the national economy.

"Everything is more or less acceptable. Still we need growth of the better quality," Medvedev said, adding that his government considers the ways to heat the domestic consumption in order to avoid recession.
