Koltsovo Airport bailiffs send home 11 Chinese migrants

Bailiffs at Koltsovo Airport sent home 11 Chinese nationals on Saturday who were allegedly residing illegally in Russia.

The origin of the nationals was revealed when Chinese border control at the Koltsovo airport asked where the migrants were from. The Chinese nationals said they were coming from Moscow, Nightly News reports.

A district court in Yekaterinburg charged the 11 Chinese citizens with administrative offenses. Each offender was ordered to pay a fine of approximately $65 and leave Russia immediately.

Prior to deportation, the migrants were kept in the internal affairs detention center in Yekaterinburg. The Chinese migrants were then taken by the bailiffs straight to the airport, where they were registered for the flight and handed over to customs officials, according to Nightly News.
