MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russian investigative committee chief Alexander Bastrykin has called for developing a federal comprehensive program for extremism prevention among youth as an important measure to fight extreme right crimes.
“The youth aged between 14 years to 30 years comes under the influence of propaganda – contorted perception of ethnic and religious relations in the society. As a result, young boys and girls join nationalist-oriented groupings, take part in mass riots and commit crimes,” he said in an interview with the Izvestiya daily published on Tuesday.
“I believe that to resolve this problem it would be quite timely to adopt a federal comprehensive program for extremism prevention among youth,” he said.
He expressed confidence that this program should incorporate school studies on ethnic and confessional tolerance as well as sports, military-patriotic and technological clubs under the government’s aegis.
Bastrykin underlined that the authorities “should fight against legalizing in Russia migrants who are involved in international extremist organizations and promote religious destructive judgements.”
“It is necessary to prevent the creation of closed ethnic groupings including migrants practicing their nationalist views. Then I think that our youth’s mentality and views will change, and as a result, the number of extremist manifestations will decline,” he said.
