Congress of Caucasian Nations demands that State Office of Public Prosecutor stops xenophobia in mass media
The Russian Congress of Caucasian Nations has called on the Russian State Office of Public Prosecutor to escalate its efforts to prevent kindling of interethnic enmity in mass media and Internet publications; the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent was informed about it at the Congress’ Office in Moscow.
“We have prepared an analytical material and have sent it to the Prosecutor’s Office in the form of an appeal. We quote web sites and printed media and indicate the Articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which penalize for such utterances,” Kantemir Khuntaev, head of the youth wing of the Russian Congress of Caucasian Nations (RCCN), said to the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent.
“These are the web sites of the MAIM (Movement Against Illegal Migration) and “Northern Brotherhood,” and the “Moskovskiy Komsomolets” edition, which publishes plenty of xenophobic and anti-Caucasian materials, however, in hidden forms, by using the so-called “hate speech.”
The “Caucasian Knot” has already informed that today at 10-11 a.m. the RCCN held a picket opposite the Reception Room of the State Office of Public Prosecutor in Moscow under the motto “Stop Ultra-Nationalism in Russia!” Some 25 persons took part in the action, mainly, the natives of both North and South Caucasus.
