MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia should prepare to deal with the dangers associated with the currnet uncontrolled migration into Europe, Federal Migration Service (FMS) Director Konstantin Romodanovsky said Friday.

He predicted that Russia could be used as a transit route by refugees from the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia.

"This process is already at its peak in the Netherlands, Germany and France. So far they are traveling to Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Their arrival in Russia is not excluded in the future," Romodanovsky stressed.

The EU border agency Frontex detected 1.83 million illegal border crossings in 2015. Over 100,000 migrants have crossed into Greece from Turkey so far this year as Europe continues to grapple with its greatest migrant crisis in decades.
