ajik citizens working in Russia make an important contribution to the development of the Russian economy. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday at a meeting with President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon in Dushanbe, Khovar reported.
“Today, we can state that these people are making a significant contribution to the development of the economy of our country, they are such a human bridge, a bridge of friendship between Russia and Tajikistan,” Putin said.
He recalled that in the Russian Federation «the most favorable regime» was introduced for labor migrants, and noted that the President Rahmon «all the time raises» the issues of labor of Tajik citizens in Russia during such personal meetings.
At the end of December 2019, Putin signed the Law on the ratification of the intergovernmental agreement with Tajikistan on the organized recruitment of labor migrants. The agreement was signed on April 17, 2019 following the visit of the President Rahmon to Moscow.

In particular, the questions concerned the regulation of migration flows and the improvement of the conditions for the stay and work of Tajik migrants and their families in Russia.
At the talks between the leaders of Tajikistan and Russia in May 2021 in Moscow, Putin stated a shortage of workers in entire sectors of the economy. Putin then stressed that Russia is doing everything to make labor migrants feel comfortable here. – Kabar
