Russia needs new approach to migration after concert attack, Putin says


YEREVAN, 2 APRIL, ARTSAKHPRESS. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday called for a new approach to migration after Tajiks living in Russia were detained for a deadly attack on a concert hall outside Moscow that killed at least 144 people and wounded 551 more.

“We need to deeply and radically update our approaches to migration policy,” Reuters quoted Putin as saying.  Russia’s President  added that some people with almost no knowledge of Russian or Russian culture were being allowed to work without proper checks.

“The decisive principle should be that only those who respect our traditions, language, culture, and history can come to live and work in Russia,” Putin said.
