The article analyzes some aspects of the modern Russian migration policy in connection with the adoption of a new “Concept of State Migration Policy of the Russian Federation for 2019–2025”. In particular, the analysis of a number of strategic planning documents shows that there are several approaches to the goals and objectives of migration policy which often contradict each other. The concept therefore cannot be considered as the basic policy document. The list of main priorities and the absence of cross-border labor migration among them raise questions as well. In such a situation a significant gap between declared priorities and actual steps is possible. The case of a “migration amnesty” (regularization) and of an organized recruitment from the countries of the EAEU and the CIS clearly demonstrates this.
