MOSCOW. Dec 26 (Interfax) – Over 400 people were injured in racist
attacks, largely involving skinheads, in January-November 2006 in
Russia, human rights activists say.
“No less than 439 people have been injured, of which 44 died,” says
the Sova analytical center’s report on ethnic extremism in Russia. The
report was presented in Moscow on Tuesday.
According to the Sova report, in autumn 2006 over 27 cases of
vandalism were committed against monuments to the victims of the Great
Patriotic War (WW II) and facilities belonging to religious faiths. In
the past autumn, ten Jewish, six Muslim, and five Orthodox sites were
damaged.
The report’s authors say prosecution of ethnic hatred crimes has
increased.
“In autumn 2006, at least eight sentences that took into
consideration this motive were pronounced. In January-November 2006 no
less than 25 such sentences were pronounced, and 80 people were
convicted under these. These results are considerably better than last
year’s results when, according to our data, 15 sentences were pronounced
on 55 people,” the report says.
