Illegal immigration to Russia has been ongoing.

There are currently[timeframe?] an estimated 4 million illegal immigrants from the former Soviet states in the Russian Federation.[1][verification needed]

In 2012, the Russian Federal Security Service's Border Service stated there had been an increase in illegal migration from former Soviet states, such as Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova. Under legal changes made in 2012, illegal immigrants who are caught will be banned from reentering the country for ten years.[2][3][4]
