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

Russia has approximately 55,000 or somewhat more skinheads. That�s 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.
