Nationalism growth in Russia causes alarm

Moscow has the largest Muslim population in Europe, with four mosques in the city serving more than two million people. The country has become a multi-confessional state in which Muslims and Christians have had to learn to live together. But according to experts, every day the problems connected with international and religious issues come up.

On April 10, murder of the representative of the Azerbaijani diaspora Metin Mekhtiyev was committed in Moscow. According to the Investigatory Committee the murder was made for the purpose of a robbery.

Meanwhile, the colleagues of Mekhtiev are sure – the crime was made by nationalists, considering the fact that Mekhtiyev was the head of the department of the Islamic cultural center in Russia.

Mekhtiyev worked in the Islamic cultural center since 2000. After elimination of the Islamic center in May 2011, he organized annual celebrations on the occasion of the main Islamic holidays, meetings against the publication of caricatures on prophet Mohammed, war in Lebanon and Iraq.

All nationalist movements are officially illegal in Russia. According to experts, only by resisting the provocations which could be followed from the West and the preservation of the integrity Russia remains the strong state.

According to the Government, Russia will resist the intervention of the states which use the principle “Divide and dominate”.

Nationalism growth in Russia causes alarm among Muslim experts. But despite it, now the course of the state is turned to formation of such model of the state which would be comfortable for all invaders who consider Russia as their Homeland. Russian nationalists however oppose this utopian idea and believe that “Russia should be Russian, just like it always used to”.
