Putin Says Russia Short-Handed in Some Economic Sectors

Russian authorities do their best so that the coming migrant workers can feel comfortable, since Russia faces labor shortages in certain sectors of the economy, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rahmon in Moscow on Saturday, TASS informed.

The Russian leader focused on labor migration, calling it important.

“I know that the issue is sensitive for Tajikistan,” Putin noted. “We do our best to make people feel comfortable. Especially since we are currently short-handed in entire sectors of the economy.”

The president pointed out that migrants send quite a lot of money from Russia to support their families. “And I think it is an absolutely positive process,” Putin concluded.
