In the Kaliningrad region, foreigners were banned from working in schools and kindergartens, as well as driving buses and taxis
The governor of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov, has banned the involvement of foreigners working in the region on patents in 12 types of labor activity. This is stated in the decree, which was published on July 1 on the official portal of legal information.
It is prohibited to involve foreigners in the Kaliningrad region, in particular, in the production of bread, confectionery and baby food, the transportation of passengers in buses and taxis, short-term rental housing, work in the field of preschool and school education.
The decree will enter into force in three months. Its validity period is one year. Restrictions against migrants in it are in no way justified.
In March 2019, Yakutia was banned from hiring foreign citizens in 33 fields of activity – in particular, in agriculture, trade, construction and public catering. They were also banned from carrying passengers in public transport and taxis.
Several anti-migrant rallies had recently taken place in the region. They began after a native of Kyrgyzstan was accused of rape. Against the backdrop of protests, there were reports of threats and attacks on migrants, which caused them to refuse to go to work.
