Hide / Show Abstract

The net migration inflow to the Russian Federation (excluding Crimea) decreased to around 220 000 persons in 2015, 18% less than in 2014 despite the 1% increase in immigration to 573 000. Flow data stated below are estimates which exclude movements to/from Crimea. About 30% of immigrants arrived from Ukraine (169 000, up 47%), Uzbekistan (74 000, down 47%), Kazakhstan (66 000), Tajikistan (47 000) and Armenia (46 000). Emigration from the Russian Federation increased by 14% to 362 000, mainly due to outflows of long-term labour migrants whose registration expired and who did not find a new job in Russia. The main destination countries were Uzbekistan (95 000), Ukraine (48 000), Tajikistan (36 000), Kazakhstan (30 000) and Armenia (25 000).
