UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 12, 2015. Sverdlovsk Region grew less attractive for people living in other Russian Federation constituencies: 16,300 people came here between January and June 2015 while 19,200 people moved somewhere else in the country, Sverdlovskstat reports.

This means depopulation was 2,900 people, compared with population increase of 875 people in 2014.

Sverdlovsk Region’s overall population shrank by 463 people due to migration (a year earlier, the population grew 1,565 people larger).

The number of international migrants rose by 2,437 people (compared with 690 people in January-July2014) and reached 4,059 people. The number of migrants arriving from the CIS member states went up by 2,559 people, while that of migrants arriving from other foreign countries dropped by 122 people.
