Human trafficking in the Russian Federation is closely linked to irregular migration into which huge numbers of people from the former USSR have been drawn. The European Parliament's fight against organized crime and money found 880 thousand. Modern slaves in the EU, writes the German weekly "Der Spiegel", become familiar with its report. In this business was involved about 3,600 international criminal gangs. Only trafficking in human beings brings € 25 billion a year. Comparable income - € 18-26 billion - brings together trade bodies with a prohibited wildlife trade; the report said (Enslaved Europe,, 2015)). The author analyzes the problem of illegal migration, which became relevant in the present time in Russia. The data for the research was collected by employing statistical, sociological, cartographic and analytical methods. The report analyses the scale of trafficking for labour exploitation in the Russian Federation and its link to irregular migration. The system for the regulation of labour migration in the Russian Federation can be viewed as imperfect and currently incomplete, enabling the possibility for labour migrants to be actively drawn into human trafficking and labour exploitation by unscrupulous employers and criminals.
