Zhiriniovsky’s party proposes moratorium on remittances by labor migrants to their homelands

YEREVAN, October 15. / ARKA /. Members of the Russian parliament from the Liberal Democratic Party , headed by a parliament vice -speaker Igor Lebedev have asked prime minister Dmitry Medvedev to consider the possibility of imposing a moratorium on remittances by labor migrants to their home countries, RIA Novosti reported citing an MP Yaroslav Nilov.

"We propose that a temporary moratorium be imposed on remittances by labor migrants to their home countries. We believe this will create a financial instrument to force labor migrants to leave our country. Subsequently we should establish a tough control on their entry into the Russian Federation", said Nilov.

In their letter to Medvedev the lawmakers ask the prime minister to consider the possibility of " a temporary moratorium on money transfers to a number of countries by all natural and legal persons from Russia’s territories to physical persons in other countries."

"This must be done to reduce the attractiveness of Russia in the eyes of migrants. In our opinion these countries are Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan and others. We emphasize that the proposed moratorium is temporary," the letter says. -0-
