    For a successful development of an economy, there is a need for vibrant labor mobility, which could secure the balance of labor supply and labor demand. In 2016, according to the Russian Federate State Statistics Service (FSSS), by attracting 12.2 million labor migrants, Russia became the second largest migrant receiving country after the United States (45 million labor migrants). Almost half of the migrants (around 6 million) are labor migrants coming to Russia mainly from the Commonwealth Independent States, particularly from Central Asia.
