"Let's look at the result. We are speaking about the preliminary situation so far. We can only say that intimidations in Russian and Azerbaijani press were not justified. Azerbaijanis are not deported from Russia," Russian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Vasili Istratov told journalists.

He said that the situation on fulfillment of migration legislation in Russia is not perfect, but no serious problems have been observed recently.

"Any country, as well as Azerbaijan tries to establish order in the field of migration. It is normal," he said.

Istratov said we should not forget that Russia is negotiating with the European Union on softening visa regime.

The ambassador noted that one of the main concerns of the EU about Russia was strict migration legislation, APA reports.
