Russian State Duma has no plans to amnesty attackers on Nalchik

apr 29 2009, 22:30

The Legislation Committee of the RF's State Duma is not preparing any bills on new amnesty, including for the participation in the attack on Nalchik in October 2005. No appeals to this end arrived to the State Duma from any public organization, as Alexander Urmanov, press-secretary of the chair of the Committee Pavel Krasheninnikov, informed the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. This information was confirmed with Olga Cheshko, an employee of the State Duma machinery.

The news that "on May 4 or 5 the State Duma should consider an amnesty bill" was spread by Vladimir Stepanov, an expert of the Public Movement "For Human Rights". He is confidently insisting that "State Duma leaders had instructed Pavel Krasheninnikov to urgently draft an amnesty statement."

Mr Stepanov has also reported that he knows that "the Kremlin stands in favour of amnesty," but the ...

FTD-Business English: Moscow Tested By Tensions In Outer Regions

Moscow tested by tensions in outer regions

von Charles Clover (Makhachkala, Dagestan)

The downturn is challenging the Kremlin's ability to buy stability in distant republics

Vladimir Radchenko's first day on the job as acting chief tax inspector for Dagestan, a region in southern Russia, did not go smoothly.

As he stepped into the office on February 6, he was confronted by the son of the president of the autonomous republic, escorted from the building by two men with pistols, stuffed into a car, driven around the capital city for an hour and threatened with death if he ever set foot in the region again.

That was just the start of a very bad week. A lesser bureaucrat, faced with the same, would probably have put in for a transfer. But not Mr Radchenko, who stormed back to the tax inspectorate a few days later in the company, it seems, of a group of heavily armed men who work for a local governor, trying to gain ...

Window on Eurasia: Conviction of Activist Who Protested Baptism of Tatar Infants Decried

Paul Goble

Vienna, April 28 – Last Friday’s conviction in a Naberezhny Chelny court of a Tatar activist who had spoken out against the baptism of Tatar infants by a Russian Orthodox priest without the permission of their parents or guardians has sparked protests from the Tatar Social Center (TOTs) as well as from human and religious rights groups elsewhere,.
On Friday, the court found TOTs leader Rafiz Kashapov guilty of provoking interethnic and inter-religious hostility (under Section 1 of Article 282 of the Russian Criminal Code) for his article “No to Christianization!” in which he protested the baptism of infants of Tatar nationality, a traditionally Muslim people, and gave him a suspended sentence of 18 months
That article appeared on Kashapov’s blog shortly after a Russian Orthodox priest baptized the children on January 16th of this year ...

the vote, is an outspoken Kremlin critic [AFP]

A pro-government candidate has been confirmed as the winner of the mayoral poll in Sochi, the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics, in a race seen as a test of the political climate under Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president.

Anatoly Pakhomov, the city's acting mayor and a candidate for United Russia, the party of Vladimir Putin, the country's  prime minister, won 77 per cent of votes cast, the central election commission said on Monday.

An aide to Boris Nemtsov, the leading opposition candidate, accused the authorities of "flagrant falsifications".

The race in the dilapidated Soviet-style Black Sea resort town has been closely followed after Moscow poured billions of dollars into Sochi's Olympic preparations.

Democratic test

While Moscow was keen to get a dependable mayor to prepare for the games, the vote had also been ...

Window on Eurasia: Will Non-Russians of the Altai Unite into a Single Nation for the Census?

Paul Goble

Vienna, April 22 – The indigenous ethnic groups of the Altai Republic are thinking about uniting into a single Altai nation in advance of the 2010 Russian census, lest Moscow decide given how few members there are of any one of them to decide to liquidate the republic and combine it with the neighboring Altai kray.
One of the reasons some officials in the republic say they are pushing the idea is that a recent federal law providing assistance to numerically small communities led some members of the formerly united Altai people to declare themselves Kumandins, Tubulars, Chelkans, Telengits and Altais in order to receive aid (
But while the individual members of these communities perhaps gained individually, Ivan Belekov, the speaker of the republic’s legislative assembly, told the Regnum news agency yesterday, ...
