Konstantin Pulikovsky, the presidential plenipotentiary to the Far Eastern federal district, where migration problems are most acute, has drafted a federal bill on migration.
Pulikovsky's spokesman Yevgeny Anoshin said Tuesday that the draft law had been submitted to the head of state.
In his words, the bill is based on numerous proposals of the executives and legislators, law-enforcers and social security services of the Far Eastern federation members.
Pulikovsky will report about the draft law and the migration in Russia's Far East at a session of the Security Council, the spokesman said.
The bill, Pulikovsky said, lays down solutions to three major problems: how to make Russians stay in the Far East and the North, and how to attract new settlers from other parts of Russia there; how to attract other CIS and Baltic citizens to the Far East, above all Russian citizens and Russian-speaking people with no naturalisation; how to use foreign labour force in eastern Russia.
According to the presidential plenipotentiary, the influx of foreign citizens to the Far Eastern federal district is necessary in view of the acute shortage of labour force in the district. However, the envoy believes that foreigners' staying on Russia's territory should be regulated by law.
