Deputies of Yamal intend to support changes to the Federal law “On the right of citizens of the Russian Federation to freedom of movement, choice of a place of stay and residence within the Russian Federation”. The changes will allow nomadic and semi-nomadic population to register in one of municipalities within borders of a nomadic route on a citizen’s choice. The draft law was considered at the sitting of the Committee for development of agro-industrial complex and indigenous ethnic minorities of the North. The voting on the issue will be held by correspondence.
Currently, nomads can register only in municipal districts at the address of the local administration. Replacement of that notion with “a municipal formation” will allow bridging the lacuna in federal legislation and considering territorial features of organizing of local self-government in all Russian subjects.
“There are no municipal districts in a number of Russian regions. For example, in Magadan and Sakhalin regions the territory is completely divided between urban districts. If there are no local self-governmental bodies of municipal districts authorized to confirm with appropriate documents the fact that citizens lead the nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle, then registration of those citizens at their place of residence within specified territories becomes impossible”, Marat Abdrakhmanov, the chairman of the specialized committee explains.
According to federal legislation, the notion of “a municipal formation” is a generalization. It covers an urban or rural settlement, a municipal district, an urban district, an urban district with intraurban division, an intraurban district or an intraurban territory of a city of federal significance.
Now the regional authorities are working on wording that allows considering inter-settlement territories, where nomadic routes most often pass, in the draft federal law.
As it should be noted, the changes to the federal law on the right of citizens to register on places of nomadic areas were made in 2011 on the initiative of legislators from Yamal. The amendments considering territorial specifics of organizing of local self-governments in all regions of the Russian Federation are being brought in it.
