Migration attractiveness of Russian regions

The uneven distribution of internal and international migrants across the territory of the Russian Federation has a stable character. Analysis of migration statistics data for years 2005, 2010 and 2020 shows that the number of regions of the country that are the most attractive for migrants is limited, and their composition changes slightly over time. In most regions, the migration balance is negative, and the outflow of population is not compensated by the arrival of refugees, internally displaced persons and persons who have received temporary asylum in Russia. In 2022 previously stable migration patterns have changed, and the value of the migration balance in the country as a whole has changed from posi-tive to negative. The prospects for internal and external migration in Russia remain unclear, which determines the need for monitoring and subsequent analysis of migration flows in different regions of the country.
