MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said it is necessary to create society of ethnic harmony and advocate tolerance to various nationalities and confessions.
“We have to create society of internal harmony where people are tolerant to each other and at the same time respect traditions that comprise the core of that or another ethnos,” he said in an interview with Euronews TV channel aired on Friday.
“Regardless of whether the talk is about Central Russia, the Caucasus, or the Far East citizens of Russia live everywhere and have the same rights and obligations and have to correspondingly behave themselves in society,” he added.
“Russia is an extremely complicated country in the ethnic aspect and has a big number of nationalities, confessions, and migrants who arrive in every country including Russia. Problems in ethnic relations, between those who arrive to work in European countries and the indigenous population have aggravated practically in each European country. Therefore, I believe it necessary to discuss the issue with experts and politicians” (at the Yaroslavl world political forum), he said.
