Tasks associated with maintaining inter-ethnic peace in terms of migration pressure, cannot remain secondary.

The transition of authority from the MIA to FADH
19 April in Stavropol after the exit meeting of security Council of Russia, the head of the FADH Igor Barinov said that the law on socio-cultural adaptation of migrants will be developed by the fall of 2017. Representatives FADH previously told “Izvestia” that the document is signed by the President by June this year. Until April 2016 issue of the Federal migration service, and after its elimination, these functions were assigned to the interior Ministry. Now responsible for the development and implementation of the draft law “On social and cultural adaptation and integration of migrants” will become FADH.
In the explanatory note to the decree of the President (at the disposal of “Izvestia”) stated that at present in Russia for various purposes is more than 10 million foreign citizens, of which 85.1 per cent are citizens of the CIS. This number will grow, and with it the risk of an increase in the number of conflicts on the basis of international relations, the document says.
Specialist in migration law Rustam Kasimov has declared “news” that we need a “full audit for compliance with the migration policy concept”.
For example, one law says that a patent gives the right to stay in Russia, the other says that you need to register. And the migrant does not understand he needs to register or not, — he stressed. — You also need to introduce the tools of adaptation of migrants. For example, free courses of the Russian language, which is now enjoyed. That the migrant did not buy a certificate of knowledge of the Russian language and took classes, passed exams and received a free patent. That is, you need to create motivation to ensure that the migrants wanted to learn Russian language and history of the country. Must be a powerful motivational campaign from leaflets at stations to advertising on TV.
The expert also added that the representatives of the employment service in those regions that are interested in the inflow of migrants must have their representatives at the local level (Tajikistan, Uzbekistan). After all, it is easier to test those who intend to go to Russia, for example, the presence in the criminal databases. Another motivational measure would be the systematization of tax deductions, for now, migrants often pay double tax — 13% on patent and the same employer may transfer their salary.
