MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. There have been no Ukrainophobia outbreaks in Russia, the Moscow Bureau for Human Rights said in its reports.
No protests against Ukrainians took place in Russia in 2014 that could be comparable to demonstrations (against immigrants) in Kondopoga in 2006, on Manezh Square in Moscow in 2010 and in Moscow’s Biryulyovo neighborhoods in 2013, the document said.
The incident that involved members of the unregistered party Other Russia (June 16, 2014, when they threw smoke bombs to the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow and attempted to get into the territory, but were detained) was "an exception to the rule," the bureau said.
There were no Ukrainophobia outbreaks in social networks either, human rights activists said, adding that not Ukrainians, but state authorities in the country were criticized.
No Ukrainophobia manifestations were reported in Russian regions that traditionally have a high number of ethnic Ukrainians, Ukrainian national cultural organizations and communities, such as the Krasnodar, Stavropol, Rostov and Belgorod regions.
Accusations of corruption, nationalism, Nazism and other harsh statements in the regions and in Russia on the whole were addressed only to political leaders of Ukraine, the report said.
