About four million foreigners are illegally staying on Russian territory at this stage
Viktor Papsuyev,department chief at the Russian Interior Ministry's crime-investigation department disclosed these statistics to reporters. One is particularly alarmed because Russia has turned into a trans-shipment area for illegal migrants, Mr. Papsuyev told those present. Experts estimate that approximately four million foreigners are now illegally staying on Russian territory, Mr. Papsuyev went on to say. According to Mr. Papsuyev, the largest ethnic diasporas comprise CIS citizens, i.e. Ukrainian, Azeri, Tajik, Moldovan, Armenian and Georgian nationals, as well as those from other countries of the world, such as China, Vietnam, India, Afghanistan and Turkey. The influx of foreign citizens gives rise to additional crimes connected with this category of people, Mr. Papsuyev noted. In this connection, one can predict additional crimes against foreign citizens, Mr. Papsuyev said. In his words, this can be explained by the fact that foreigners living on Russian territory take part in business operations, subsequently becoming quite rich; consequently, they are shadowed by the underworld, their own compatriots included. Moreover, crimes against foreign citizens highlight some important problems, Mr. Papsuyev informed his audience. Among other things, investigators face language problems, while dealing with foreign plaintiffs; such plaintiffs living in other countries of the world (except post-Soviet republics) are in no mood to visit Russia for the sake of taking part in police investigations, Mr. Papsuyev explained. Apart from that, crimes against foreigners are not being registered accordingly because foreigners don't like to contact local law-enforcement agencies; on the contrary, they approach similar divisions back home. A foreign plaintiff's appeal is then mailed to Russian law-enforcement agencies only after a certain time period; this makes it harder to promptly solve these crimes, Mr. Papsuyev said in conclusion
