MOSCOW, July 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is creating a federal centre to monitor inter-ethnic relations. The duty to draft a system of preventing ethnic conflicts will be the government's competence. The program will be launched by the end of this year, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday. The system will cover all of the country’s regions.
Putin recalled that some countries these days were experiencing what he described as erosion of traditional spiritual values.
“We are witnesses to neo-Nazi organizations revive and gain influence in some countries, and ethnic and religious intolerance and calls for violence become the slogan of forces seeking rise to power,” Putin said.
