The Russian Migrants Federation has urged representatives of ethnic communities to remain on alert in the wake of disturbances in southern Moscow.

Migrants and foreign nationals "should stay away from public places," he said.

He said the Moscow police are taking effective measures to bring the situation back to normal.
