According to Rosstat, net immigration decreased again sharply in 2018 to 125 000 and, for the first time since 2009, could not compensate for the negative natural growth. In 2016 and 2017, net immigration amounted for 262 000 and 212 000, respectively. Most immigrants come from the former USSR and in 2018, the largest sources of net immigration were Tajikistan (31 000) and Kazakhstan (27 000).
