About 80 citizens of Tajikistan, who lived illegally in the Moscow Region, were deported home. Most of them worked at construction sites in the towns of Khimki, Podolsk and Domodedovo near Moscow. Last night the illegal migrants were taken to Chkalovsky airport on buses accompanied by police and from there were flown to Dushanbe on a military-transport aircraft.
The decision on the deportation of the mentioned persons outside of Russia was taken by the Moscow Regional Court on the basis of material provided by the passport-visa service.
The Regional Interior Department noted that these preventive measures in exposing people illegally living on the territory of Russia are planned and carried out regularly. The member of the Interior Department recalled that last Friday 70 illegal migrants from Tajikistan were sent home. According to the Interior Department of the Moscow Region, altogether about 1,000 illegal migrants are deported every year from the Moscow Region.
