The border regime will be simplified in Chukotka

In the Duma of the Chukotka Autonomous Region a public discussion took place Simplification of the border regime, the administration said.

In particular, it is planned to remove the border regime in Anadyr, Bilibino, Iultinsky, Chaunsky districts and in the urban district of Anadyr. The special zone will remain only in Providensky and Chukotka regions.

The public's attitude to this decision is ambiguous - people fear that the removal of the border zone will cause an increase in crime in the region, and a large influx of residents from other regions of the country will lead to unemployment and an increase in the number of infectious diseases in Chukotka.

Public discussion is aimed at explaining to the residents of Chukotka the positive aspects of the removal of the border regime. In particular, according to Alexander Kurilov, Head of the Border Department, this will create additional prerequisites for the development of tourism, business and the economy as a whole in the region. At present, the Frontier Office is conducting an active information campaign in Chukotka.
