Novaya Gazeta

Chairman of the Moscow City Duma Alexei Shaposhnikov introduced a bill to the State Duma on criminal liability for mediating the illegal receipt of documents for entry, stay or transit. This is stated in the database of bills of the lower house of parliament. According to Shaposhnikov, companies are actively working in Russia, which, under the guise of providing advice for a fee, provide migrants with "documents obtained bypassing the legislation" procedures. For violation of the law, the Moscow deputy proposed to fine 200 thousand rubles, or send him to forced labor for a term of three years, or to imprison him for three years. "The adoption of the draft law will make it possible to fill a gap in the legal regulation of illegal migration and improve law enforcement practices in this area," the author concluded.
