Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / Shakir Salimov, the Division Head at the State Committee on Affairs of Azerbaijanis Residing Abroad, reported that there are no cases of mass withdrawal of Azerbaijanis from bazaars in Russia in connection to the ban on foreign traders' activities in Russia.

He noted that after the adoption of a new law concerning migrants' status in Russia, many Azerbaijanis legalized their documents. "We have regular contact with Azerbaijanis residing in Russia. Most of them have no problems and so few people are obliged to limit their activities due to absence of documents," Salimov noted.
