One of the main events of last week in the Far Eastern Federal District was the visiting meeting on national security issues, which was held in Yakutsk by Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev. Emphasis was put on demography, migration policy and the development of border areas, and the meeting showed a difference in approaches between the representatives of the federal and regional authorities, according to the next issue of the EastRussia bulletin published on Monday.

As noted, Nikolai Patrushev himself outlined a standard line of measures to equalize the demographic situation: strengthen migration control, step up work to identify and prevent violations of migration legislation, up to deportation to "reduce the risks of spreading terrorism." The proposals of the regions have been reduced mainly to solving the problem of financing.

So, the Governor of the Sakhalin Oblast Oleg Kozhemyako initiated the initiative to empower the regions of the Far East with the deportation of migrants, as well as allow the regions to build temporary detention centers. It is worth noting that the transfer of these powers to the level of the region is unlikely to solve the systemic problems of migration in the Far East. The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport offered to support the border territories with separate quotas within the framework of large federal programs, such as the rural development program, the program for creating a comfortable urban environment, the PPP program. In turn, the governor of the Amur region, Alexander Kozlov, proposed giving the status of national importance to the activities of regional programs for the development of the border areas of the Far Eastern Federal District. In this case, co-financing from the federal budget will reach 99%.
