Due to the weakening of the ruble, the country is left massively by labor migrants

According to federal media reports, more than 25% of migrants plan to leave Russia and go in search of earnings to other countries. First and foremost, such a decision is pushed by the weakening of the ruble exchange rate. The main part of labor migrants does not spend their earnings in Russia, but sends them to their homeland, to support their families. The fall in wealth immediately in 2 – 2,5 times forces people to substantially revise their plans.

“Young people are discussing, they have big loans in Tajikistan in dollars. I do not exclude that they will go to hot spots and will earn, return money to the treasury. I do not exclude that they will take up arms and send money from there. If they stay alive, it will be good, ”the head of the Federation of Migrants of Russia, Mohammed Amin, noted to Interfax.

First of all, large cities in the European part of Russia will face the problem of outflow of labor resources. However, in the Far East, labor migrants are fairly widely employed in various sectors of the economy: housing and public utilities, construction, agriculture, and transport. According to EastRussia, in a number of cities in the Far East, the first meetings were held at the municipal level, designed to maintain control over the spheres of the urban economy in the event of a massive outflow of labor.
