Ethnic and religious extremism in Russia should be eliminated – Medvedev

Speaks for itself.

(Interfax) – Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has called to cut short any action aimed at fomenting ethnic, religious and social hatred and prosecute those guilty of this.

“In current conditions manifestations of extremism are particularly dangerous. In many cases they are directly linked to attempts to destabilize the situation in society,” Medvedev told a meeting of the board of the Russian Prosecutor’s General Office on Wednesday.

The president reminded prosecutors that they “have the right to move in courts to liquidate certain public and religious organizations and suspend their activity before a court makes a decision.”
