As compared to the previous year, Q1 2017 saw a decrease in the migration growth in Russia’s population and a downturn of Ukraine’s role as a major migration donor. The number of internal migrants is still stable with lines of migration remaining unchanged. The number of temporary migrants arriving in Russia keeps steadily falling, however, a more explicit seasonal upsurge of the index in 2017 points to the fact that Russia is still attractive to labor migrants from the CIS, primarily, the Central Asia and Ukraine.
