At a meeting of the Russian Security Council, Putin said that in order to fight manifestations of extremism, it is necessary to pay more attention to interethnic and interregional relations and support culture and unique identity of peoples.
The president pointed to the necessity to work with youth, as leaders of extremist organizations try to recruit followers, spread their propaganda, first of all via the internet, among young people.
The third point, Putin said, is improvement of the migration policy as illegal, uncontrolled migration is a nutritional medium for crime.
“It is necessary to enhance control of adherence to the rules of stay in Russia by migrants, address their social and cultural adaptation, protection of their labor and other rights in deed,” the head of state said.
Putin said that “in conditions of such trust and support, it is considerably easier to form an atmosphere of intolerance toward propaganda of extremist ideas, the feeling of their rejection and non-acceptance. The understanding by citizens of the entire danger of extremism is a guarantee that measures taken by the authorities will be effective.”
“In order to resolve tasks to counter extremism, a comprehensive approach is required, a good, complex knowledge of the state of affairs in each specific region and federal district,” the head of state said.
Putin said relations between various national and social groups should be constantly monitored and analyzed.
“This falls within the scope of personal responsibility of [Russian] Federation constituent members’ heads and presidential representatives at the local level,” the president warned.
He said the interdepartmental commission on resistance to extremism will play the coordinating role in the anti-extremism efforts at the federal level. The commission is led by Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev.
