Abstract

According to the 2016 results, in Russia migration growth is likely to return from lower rates to the level of the past few years. As before, migration virtually ensures completely population growth in Russia. The two largest metropolitan areas (Moscow together with the Moscow Region and St. Petersburg together with the Leningrad Region) and the Krasnodar Territory are the main centers which attract migrants. Also, there is a renewal of growth in temporary foreign migration (season migrants) in a summer period. The number of season foreign migrants is below the level of 2013–2014 and even that of 2015. In 2016, the issues related to regulation of labor migration have become more topical: the number of work permits required for employment keeps falling.

Keywords: Russian economy, labor market, migration
