MOSCOW, February 19 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes that the Strategy of the State Nationalities Policy will not remain “a declaration of intentions” but will really work.
“Our basic task is to strengthen harmony and accord in the multiethnic Russian society so that people, regardless of their ethnic origin and religious creed, should be aware of themselves as citizens of one country. This is the earnest of successful sustainable development of our country,” the president told the meeting of the Council for Interethnic Relations.
Putin said this approach is inherent in the new Strategy of the State Nationalities Policy that was endorsed in December. “The government now works on the plan of the implementation of this policy but very much must be done to make it work, so that it should not remain a sort of ‘a declaration of intentions’,” Putin said.
