The scandal surrounding the "Handbook of labor migrants" spread in St. Petersburg, goes on an international level. Tajik Foreign Ministry claimed to stop the spread and kill the circulation of the publication, the pages of which migrant workers are depicted in the form of building and economic instruments — such as a spatula, roller and broom, reports Trud.ru.
Also in Dushanbe say "a lot of grammatical and spelling errors" in the Tajik version of manuals, reports the portal. However, on the website of the Tajik Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the violent statements to find some reason failed. At the same time, the Migration Service of the Tajik government's claims that it is she who first claimed the seizure and liquidation of the Russian Federation issued a handbook. Image of migrants so makarom offensive and capable of causing offense in the ranks of migrant workers, because "we have proposed to the authorities that it would be best to remove these directories and address," said a spokesman for the service Kodiri Radio Ozodi Abdullah (Tajik version of "Radio Liberty") on October 22, .
St. Petersburg administration previously had to defend because of this book. Smolny announced that it has nothing to do business. "Creator and developer of this publication is the regional public organization" Gaze into the future ", which is implementing the project" East-West ", aimed at social adaptation and prevention of HIV / AIDS in the middle of labor migrants from Central Asia", — emphasized in a special message on the web site of the Committee on the external relations of St. Petersburg last Friday.
Directory publishers themselves have told the same day that the project, in which was placed brochure, ended September 1, but no complaints about them so far they have not received, and no issues with illustrations, no they did not ask.
"By selecting these drawings in the form of system tools, we mean non-migrants, but simply assistants. This picture-mates, characters booklet. Skrepochka How in the computer program there. And none migrant we can not lamented that, "- said the manager," look to the future, "Gleb Panfilov," Interfax. "With this project," we want to show that to them (migrant workers) should be treated as people, not as a labor power ", — explained the Panfilov plan.
But the Commissioner for Human Rights in St. Petersburg Alexander Shishlov believes that the scandalous brochure contrasts of urban residents and visitors and serves to strengthen tolerance. The very information available in this booklet is very useful, "illustration does not cause the same feelings of tolerance," said the agency "BaltInfo" the press service of the Ombudsman.
With all of this even the right ideas in this book serves complex language which hard to accept even Russian citizens, let alone foreigners, said the Ombudsman. According to him, brochure published by means of the Danish organization, the title of which his press office did not specify, and the city budget means it does not stand out.
Directory was issued a circulation of 10 thousand copies. Brochure tells the story of how the right to come to St. Petersburg and get registered as a job, where to pass the medical examination and how to behave in public places, observing the accepted norm in Russia. Books were distributed in the middle of migrants from Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, in their own languages.
With all of this in the form of speaking subjects in the brochure show only guest workers. For example, the perfect "roll" or "brush" to use the phrase "Could you assist me?" or "Excuse me …" Other characters booklets that help acclimate people in the town: the guard, a bureaucrat, a policeman, a doctor, a guide, an employee of the museum, in other words, friendly St. Petersburg — like real people.
In designing a brochure assumed the role of experts at the Federal Migration Service in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, as the City Center for Prevention and Control of AIDS, according to the Web site applets.
