The article by Professor V.A. Volokh is dedicated to one of the most controversial issues of our time – migration issues in and out of Russia. In the context of economic and political globalization not only basic characteristics of the international migration process have changed, but also their determinants. The EU Member States are seriously concerned about the issues of uncontrolled flow of migrants from the Middle East and try to find ways to resolve the immigration crisis. In Russia, with the increasing flow of refugees from Eastern Ukraine and other categories of migrants, this problem has also acquired great importance. Prof. V.A. Volokh examines in detail the state migration policy of the Russian Federation, processes and mechanisms of management of migration flows, measures taken to prevent illegal immigration in the country, and suggests possible ways to optimize legislation on refugees
