Abolition of FMS
Some experts believe that President Putin decided to abolish the Federal Migration Service due to its poor performance and corruption.
Shortly after Romodanovsky left the post of head of the Federal Migration Service in 2016, the prosecutor's office began checking against him.

There has been an increase in ethnic crime due to the uncontrolled entry of migrants into Russia.
Chief Moscow prosecutor Sergei Kudeneev noted in 2013 that foreign migrants committed every second crime of rape, every third robbery and every fifth murder.
By 2016, the situation with crime in the migration environment has not undergone any changes towards improvement. MUR Deputy Head M. Trubnikov said that 75 percent of crimesrape committed by migrants, most of whom came from the former Soviet republics.
The poorly controlled migration flow exceeded, according to some observers, the need for them in the economic sphere, which led to the loss of jobs by Russian citizens.
