Authorities in Tajikistan have noted a significant outflow of Tajik labor migrants from Russia following the terrorist attack at the "Crocus City Hall" in the Moscow region. Deputy Minister of Labor of Tajikistan, Shakhnoza Nodiri, stated this, Eurasian Today reports.

According to her, more people are currently arriving in Tajikistan than leaving. She noted that the outflow is a temporary phenomenon and will cease.

Nodiri also added that "at the household level," instances of persecution of Tajikistan citizens are also being recorded.

The official also revealed that the country's authorities have intensified explanatory work with labor migrants to prevent their involvement in extremist communities.

The explanatory work has been reinforced through the structures of the migration service, which are represented in all regions of the country, explained the deputy minister of labor.
