KHABAROVSK, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev warned present politicians against use of the national question in the election campaign.
“If any of present political forces uses this item too much or causes a problem, we shall have to apply legal influence upon them,” he said during a meeting with media on Friday.
“These actions /use of nationalistic slogans/ are on the brink of crime,” he said. “Law enforcement authorities and election commissions should watch following the election legislation and the law on equality of all nationalities and nations in this country.”
Medvedev confessed that “this tendency alerts him, too.”
“Whenever political competition concentrates around the national topic, watch a trouble,” he said. “If we start dividing ourselves on the national basis, it will cause dramatic consequences for us.”
