MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russian president's aide Murat Zyazikov said on Tuesday Chechnya's example shows that the most complex problems of any regions can be resolved while preserving stability and civil accord, and using innovative approach to the socio-economic sphere.
Zyazikov congratulated the Chechen leadership and people on Day of Civil Accord, Unity and Reconciliation, which the republic marks on September 6.
The holiday was established by decree of the then Chechen president Akhmat Kadyrov, as counterbalance to the so-called Ichkeria Independence Day, which the Dudayev regime tried to legalize.
On Tuesday, a solemn event was held in Grozny's State Concert Hall, and a motor rally and a march took place in the centre of the city.
According to Zyazikov, a native of Ingushetia who was born in Grozny (the capital of the Chechen-Ingush republic at the time), the rate of construction in the Chechen capital, which is a native town for many ethnic groups, is gratifying.
"This holiday symbolizes a new stage in the establishment and development of statehood, the revival of the nation's self-consciousness as one creative force, striving towards perfection and progress," Zyazikov noted.
"In the recent years, the republic has been showing stability and innovative approaches toward the solution of many socio-economic problems," he added.
In his opinion, Chechnya's experience shows how a civilized and legal way can be used to take into account the socio-economic, historical and ethnic as well as cultural specifics of each region, while preserving stability and ethnic and religious accord.
The aide is confident that Chechnya will be contributing to the revival of "our common Motherland - Great Russia, the preservation of its unity and development of spirituality."
