Dozens of illegal workers were found at one of the agricultural enterprises in the Tula region.
“We checked one of the agricultural complexes in the Shchyokinsky region and found foreign citizens who worked despite the immigration irregularities. 70 administrative offenses were recorded,” says the press-service of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Tula region.
According to the local media, the inspection was carried out in the Tula greenhouse complex. The complex is part of the agro-industrial holding ECO-Culture.
