Sri Lanka’s embassy in the Russian capital Moscow is warning Sri Lankans not to fall victim to the fake promises of human traffickers due to a rise in complaints against phoney foreign employment and education agencies on the island, the Foreign Ministry said.

“This year, the Russian authorities apprehended 27 Sri Lankans, who had entered the country illegally and 17 of them were already deported to Sri Lanka after completing their jail terms. Ten persons are still in the detention centres in various cites of the Russian Federation, as their legal process continues,” the Ministry said.
 
The Sri Lanka Mission in Moscow has said that according to complaints received from Sri Lankans, fake foreign employment and education agencies in Sri Lanka are on the rise while the number of Sri Lankans travelling to the Russian Federation on student/visit visas, seeking job opportunities and further migration to European countries has been drastically increasing over the years.
