“To undermine the economic base”
In a press-service of Prefecture SVAO note that in two years of struggle with illegal immigrants managed to achieve some success.
“Go to VDNKH — one of our sore points, with the unrest in which we successfully fought. In places with large flow of people the temptation of illegal trade, but there is also a wide transportation network. Traders logic: time goes so many people, someone will buy it. We try to keep tight control and to turn the tide in our favor,” said RIAMA employee a press-services.
According to him, the need to undermine the “economic base” of the traders — to profit from illegal sales of fewer fines.
“Because after patrols, the illegal immigrants often return, we have taken serious measures: set a police bus near transition, by organizing the attendance of employees. So offenders don’t have to deliver to the station for identification, and you can issue on the spot. The risk is forcing dealers to refuse sales at this point. We continue in the same spirit as the people do not understand — trade is impossible and unprofitable,” — said the Agency interlocutor.
In turn, the press center of the MIA of Russia in Moscow RIAMA said that car and foot patrols PPSP identify and suppress illegal trade, and the perpetrators delivered to the Council on areas for the preparation of administrative reports under article 11.13 of the administrative code of Moscow.
“For 10 months of 2018 police officers together with representatives of the Department of trade and services of Moscow took part in 52 raids to curb illegal trade on the territory of the city, the results of which are brought to administrative responsibility 203 of the offender,” — said in the Metropolitan Chapter of the police.
