Going back home by any means – migrants go back to Central Asia

Repatriation of Central Asian citizens from Russia:

  • Tajikistan: the governement decided to repatriate citizens from Russia. On May 20th, the national company Tajik Air departed from Moscow and transported 213 Tajik citizens who had been stuck in detention centers since the closure of the borders. The flight also carried 28 coffins of Tajik citizens who died in Russia. Only one of them, Dilshod Nurmatov, died from COVID-19 in the Moscow region. Tajik citizens now living in India or Turkey also asked for repatriation.

Many Central Asian workers decided to leave Russia after they have been left unemployed during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nothing is said about sanitary measures taken at arrival.
