Luzhkov Stepped Forth with the Introduction of Amendments to Laws Concerning Migrants

Moscows mayor, Yuri Luzhkov, stepped forward with the introduction of reforms for laws concerning migrants, which oversees the registration of migrants at their place of work and assigns them housing.

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin approved the demand to improve the legislation.

Yuri Luzhkov, co-chairperson of the High Council of the party, publicizing his declaration during a meeting of Putin with representatives of United Russia, noted that the approved law on migration brought a specific benefit. Luzhkov added, though, that the need to reform this law was immediate.

Among the necessary changes named by the mayor were the following: Firstly: Quotas- we need as many migrants as the economy of the city and the country demand. Secondly: Registration needs to be not in the whole region, but in the place where migrants live and work.

In the mayors opinion, the question of normalized migrant housing is no less important.

Luzhkov noted: We are very worried by the fact that many of those who use the labor of migrants do not provide them with normal social conditions.
