Center of New Sociology: In Russia there are about 55,000 skinheads

Russia has approximately 55,000 or somewhat more skinheads. Thats what Aleksandr Tarasov, co-rector of the Center of New Sociology and Studies of Practical Politic Phoenix, announced.

At the same time he emphasized, that this is nevertheless the absolute minority among youth.

Though, in his opinion, the present Russian authorities are not against that we have skinheads here. If the strongest social and psychological tensions [in the province] will not be canalized through national, religious, racist ore other characteristics among similar others, then people will blame the authorities, explained Tarasov.
