Russian Police Wants to Know About Young People's Preferences
Rashid Nurgaliev

Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliev has said that the activity of some Internet resources should be restricted to prevent extremism among the youth.


      

He said young people were very often influenced by others, and they committed “the most audacious and cynical crimes on the grounds of national, racial or religious hatred”.
      

On Tuesday in Novosibirsk there was the first regional meeting of the new interdepartmental counter-extremist commission, which was created by the Russian president Dmitry Medvedev last week in order to prevent extremism and remove the conditions which fuel it.
      

The members of the new commission think it is very important to protect young people from harmful influence. To prevent extremism, it is necessary to know the cultural preferences of young people in regards to music, literature and movies, the police chief believes. 
      

Many cultural values that have united people for years, including such important facets of our musical heritage as love songs and waltzes, have been forgotten in the recent times. It is necessary to remind Russian people about their national self-consciousness, Nurgaliev noted.  
      

The minister called on the mass media to take part in preventing extremist manifestations. At the same time, he insists on the restrictions of the activities of some Internet resources because, in his opinion, the Internet has become “a means of organizing extremist or even terrorist actions”. The work of certain websites should be limited, “without infringing on the freedom to exchange information,” Nurgaliev said.
      

The new commission, headed by the interior minister, will coordinate the efforts of the federal and regional authorities in fighting extremism in Russia.
