By a court decision, the migrants were arrested for up to 15 days, some of them are now facing deportation with a ban on entry into the Russian Federation.

The last high-profile incident took place in Kuzminki. The brawl involved about 200 visitors from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. The fight was caused by a knife attack on two visitors from Central Asia. As a result of the scuffle, the police detained over 100 people. They were accused of petty hooliganism and violation of immigration laws. The court regarded the mass brawl of migrants as an “uncoordinated meeting". Several migrants involved in the brawl were subsequently deported from the country.
