Putin Called for the Police to Actively Fight Xenophobia and Corruption

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin called for colleagues form the Ministry of Internal Affairs to focus all of their forces on fighting nationalism and corruption within the country.

�With the passage of centuries, Russia has been strengthened and developed as a multi-ethnic and multi-faith country. And those that preach the ideas of nationalism, xenophobia and religious intolerance must be set rigid barriers�, Putin said, appearing at an event dedicated to Police Day. According to him, the fight against manifestations of extremism requires constant attention from law enforcement agencies.
