The Russian Federation is preparing to toughen penalties for violating Russia’s residency, says secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolay Patrushev.

“We are planning large-scale measures to support law and order in areas with a high density of migrants. We envision legislative changes to tighten migration control and foreign citizens’ responsibility for violating our country’s residency rules,” he told journalists on Wednesday.

He noted that law enforcement and intelligence agencies will work to identify members of foreign terrorist and extremist organizations who use migration channels to commit terrorism and other crimes.

In addition, according to Patrushev, foreign citizens’ social and cultural adaption will receive considerable attention, including instructing migrants’ children according to general Russian educational programs.
