Ministry of Internal Affairs: Russia lacks 170,000 IT specialists due to their mass exodus abroad

Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Igor Zubov said that Russia lacks about 170,000 IT specialists. According to the official, the shortage of personnel was formed as a result of the mass migration of specialists abroad.

“In connection with the sanctions regimes, we had an outflow of IT specialists, and a significant one, to a number of countries. The degree of need is determined by experts at about 170 thousand, and in general, one million people are employed in the industry, ” Zubov said at an expanded meeting of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy.

The Deputy Minister in his speech also asked the Federation Council to support the law adopted by the State Duma on the simplified procedure for granting residence permits in Russia to foreign IT specialists and their families.
