Bastrykin ordered the creation of investigative groups to combat illegal migration

In Russia, the number of crimes committed by migrants has increased. In this regard, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, said during an operational meeting that this year alone, about 25 thousand crimes have already been committed by foreigners, and 1,200 criminal cases against visitors have been sent to the courts.

“There has been an increase by a third in grave and especially grave crimes by migrants, including 157 murders and 63 cases of intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm resulting in the death of the victim. The number of crimes against sexual integrity has increased: rape – by 11%, violent acts of a sexual nature – by 12%,” Bastrykin listed.

The number of crimes committed by visitors online has increased.

The head of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Bryansk Region, Maxim Lukichev, said at the meeting that students from foreign countries conduct open correspondence with minor residents of the region on the Internet.

Bastrykin instructed to carry out preventive measures related to the distribution of drugs by migrants, as well as to identify crimes related to the registration of fictitious marriages between migrants and Russian citizens, who thus help them legalize and change their documents.

The chairman of the department, in an address to his colleagues, emphasized that “every day he receives signals from citizens about flagrant violations of the law committed by migrants.” At the same time, citizens often began to complain about minor visitors who “are increasingly demonstrating aggressive behavior, flagrantly violating accepted social norms.”

The head of the Russian Investigative Committee called on his subordinates to more firmly “bring order to the crime of migrants, especially illegal ones,” and emphasized that “the criminal legal response to lawlessness on the part of visitors in a number of regions is clearly insufficient.” He also ordered the creation of investigative teams specializing in the investigation of crimes of this category.
