Abstract

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.

Keywords: Russian economy, domestic migration
