Internal Russian immigrants flock to Moscow

Internal Russian immigrants continue to flock to the country’s Central and North-West Federal Districts, with the Volga and North Caucasus regions conversely experiencing the highest rates of exodus, according to a study from the Higher School of Economics. While Moscow and the area around the capital are still proving the strongest draw to the migrant workforce, the populations of St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Tyumen, Krasnodar, Perm, Chelyabinsk, Kaliningrad, Kazan and Krasnoyars are also growing on account of migrant inflow.
