Federal Migration Service Moscow department head Olga Kirillova has proposed compulsory labor for immigrants who owe money to the Russian state.
"There is a compulsory labor option for Russians. There may be compulsory labor for them [immigrants], too. This is a tentative suggestion. Why? Because we also go abroad and may be sentenced to compulsory labor there," Kirillova told Monday press conference in Moscow.
Also, immigrants may be prohibited to return to Russia until they pay their debts, she said.
"Russians are not allowed to travel abroad until our debts are paid, such as alimony, fines and so on. I would have done the same. I would have proposed to ban their new visits until they pay their debts to the state, in this case, our state," Kirillova said.
