Since 2016, the number of labor migrants who came to Russia from Uzbekistan has fallen at least four times. Presidential press secretary Sherzod Asadov spoke about this in an interview with Sevimli TV channel.

“Before 2016, approximately 4-6 million Uzbek migrants worked in Russia, and today this figure is 1 million. This information was also mentioned by the presidents of Uzbekistan and Russia, but most of our analysts ignored it,” Sherzod Asadov said.

According to him, this dynamics is explained by the effectiveness of the economic reforms carried out in the country.

The press secretary of the head of state also noted that during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Tashkent, several agreements were concluded in the field of labor migration.
