Uzbek Citizens Still Facing Difficulties When Entering Russia


Migrants from Uzbekistan are facing difficulties when entering Russia, due to which Uzbekistan’s embassy in Russia has sent an appeal to Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Citizens are complaining about excessive additional checks by airport services.

According to the embassy, there has been an increase in complaints by Uzbek citizens to the diplomatic mission’s call center about difficulties entering the country, or transiting through Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.

Following the terrorist attack at Moscow’s Crocus City Hall on March 22nd, which citizens of Tajikistan stand accused or perpetrating, there has been an increase in reports of Central Asian citizens facing difficulties entering Russia. A Moscow official has explained this is due to increased security measures nationwide.
