most volatile region with terror attacks happening almost daily corruption and a poor quality of life are often blamed for causing violence well next r.t. talks to the president's special envoy to the north caucuses about how the situation in the region is being improved. well christopher ponding thank you so much for being with us today thank you president did have said that one of the key problems many countries including russia face today is interesting tension and criminality many russians associate the root of these problems with the kook face you were entrusted to seek advice what can we do about it if that's all the good news so it works i strongly object to your putting it this way that the caucus is the epicenter of the ethnic crime
2:32 pm
unfortunately and it has repeatedly been stressed crime has no national identity i would support those of the opinion that the criminal group in question is of no particular ethnic origin and another important issue we have to tackle today is migration migration on fortunately or perhaps on the contrary luckily is an economic process strictly speaking modern russia has two major centers today moscow and st petersburg perhaps another two or three cities and liberations that abandon competitive business opportunities jobs and everything related to this these centers attract people from the republics of the north caucasus siberia and the far east stimulating migration towards big cities this is the first issue and i repeat it is of purely economic nature but the same can also be said of education today the most popular and prestigious higher educational institutions are the universities of moscow and st petersburg therefore it is only natural that young people are eager to enter these universities above all others we should focus on
2:33 pm
the issue and take all the necessary steps a government level to provide for similar competitive educational facilities in the north caucasus and many other russian cities of if we want to develop our vast country another really great problem is the unrestrained inflow of cheap labor from the former soviet union this is a huge. problem today is we are getting a cheap and uncontrolled workforce that is not always civilized and cultured and cannot always adopt a living in the capital and other big cities we should concentrate on this problem what. i have to interconnected questions for you the first one is about the outflow of the russian speaking population from the north caucuses in fact it's not only students that migrate to the big cities but also all types of common citizens you can't compare this process to that of siberia or the far east because unlike these regions the caucuses has to do with ethno cultural installation as a result of internal russian migration that could eventually split the country what can be done to reintegrate this population back into the north caucuses. let's look
2:34 pm
at this problem from another angle who benefits from the migration of the russian speaking population if you think the republic of dagestan or the chechen republic or any other constituent entity benefits from it you are fundamentally wrong they need a russian speaking population like bread or air because the russian language is the link between various nationalities co-existing in the north caucasus so there is another thing here you know the notion of population mobility and the russian speaking population is far more mobile than the caucasians who are more devoted to their homes and roots their land and traditions of the state should deal with this by creating new competitive jobs we believe that the state development program for the north caucasus should focus on creating conditions that would facilitate an inflow of russian speakers into the region it's in our immediate interest to work on this and what is particularly encouraging the republics are interested in creating such conditions to go. in august a high ranking french delegation visited the north caucuses and announce their
2:35 pm
decision to invest considerable funds in developing two reasons that could this result in building a cluster of two or three disconnected from the rest of the region where misery and lawlessness still persist are you saying that there will be a zone where a lot. an order will be installed and chaos and misery everywhere outside that zone i'm asking you this in audio with possible pillars of course not that i want you to understand that we are not reinventing the wheel here we are not inventing constructions that have never been heard though it is perfectly obvious that unless the local population is integrated into the tourism cluster development process all our attempts to build ski lives and five star hotels will inevitably fall flat if we disenfranchise the indigenous population the local population must be involved in all of these developments for us how do we do that we get you first of all we must gather what i call the starship troopers well that's up to ten thousand young people who will be employed in the tourism and service sector these people must be
2:36 pm
local and live in the areas where these mountain skiing clusters will be developed second from any residential areas located around those skiing posters we're going to select young people teach them and do our best to help them set up small and medium businesses sometimes with the help of the state they may open small hotels for tourists we want people to be able to make money if people feel involved and integrated in this process i see no problems at all austria had the same experience a while back austria's vice chancellor said at a conference that there were also explosions in austria while infrastructure was being built the local population he said was also terribly obsessive until authorities managed to involve locals in what was going on before the project had incurred great difficulty i can go through this to flip on and he said the piece through to many in business people and even state officials state terrorists to ensure their safety and then that money later of used to finance terrorist attacks what can be done about that when even state officials and civilians have to pay
2:37 pm
terrorists. over greater proportion of all i would say it has to do with a certain lack of trust the business people have in the ability of federal authorities to protect them from criminal extortion networks recently active in the caucasus this situation however risk. changing now we're working actively to explain to people that aiding and abetting terrorism is a crime just as destructive as terrorism itself and that any money given to terrorists can be seen as a crime equal to carrying out a terrorist attack today we have many cases of local citizens and business people cooperating with law enforcement the results are improving gradually but again this is a long process but i've talked to several leaders of north quick this republics and their opinions differ some of them say negotiations with terrorists i'm necessary on a thing that there is no talking to terrorists you think authorities must negotiate with terrorists. i believe there's nothing to negotiate with terrorists but we should talk and negotiate with parents of those children who have left for the
2:38 pm
woods and haven't committed any crimes yet if there's a chance to bring them back in the woods with the help of our religious leaders or their parents and families elders councils and any other social institutions we should be doing our utmost to take it serious we should encourage those who report to us and inform on these people those who are willing to lay down their arms and start living a peaceful life we should consolidate our efforts because once they take a gun and commit a crime there's nothing to talk to them about. how many terrorists operate throughout the north caucasus today. we like giving numbers but it's actually very difficult to make a difference between bandits and terrorists or the overall number that i usually give to media agencies for both small groups of five to six members and large groups of twenty to thirty is up to one thousand people in all the north caucuses republics the women we're aware of these gang leaders and we've been working thoroughly on their cases. and they funded from within the concho by all the country. was
2:39 pm
a. recent analysis shows the abroad domestic funding ratio is about ten to ninety the latter being russia they don't need to support of international organizations and other worldwide terror networks such as al-qaeda the money they extort from business representatives. inform them that this actually means that it's not so much terrorism as banditry at the same time i want to stress again that there is indeed a funding inflow from western foundations charities and human rights organizations these funds are used among other things to finance radical religious literature and a number of bondage leaders who exploit children for profit in the caucasus what you. can go read mystical upon in many north caucuses residents go to muslim countries such as pakistan and saudi arabia to study by the time they return home what is this subtle line for them between their spiritual freedom and the realize ation that the citizens of a secular state with that. at the greatest. unfortunately this
2:40 pm
line becomes blurred we are indeed facing this problem until recently we were unaware of the number of young people who traveled for religious education in saudi arabia pakistan egypt and a number of other countries having lived and studied for five years in a country like saudi arabia which is an absolutely non secular state a person returns to our country to secular authority institutions and laws and fields are lost amid these realities for these people require a special approach and out of protection program in essence various countries have different ways of working on this matter for instance turkey and particularly azerbaijan they have practically made a decision on providing active adaptive work for these people until these people are really fully adopted to secular laws and to particular rules and principles of behavior until they are prepared to follow these laws because they have no right to take any position in any state unit simple or regional structure nor to do business they have to go through a certain out of taishan system first unfortunately there is no legislative base
2:41 pm
for this it's a very complicated process it requires a lot of patient and tedious work on the part of families for example on relationships with parents we need to keep track of children who travel abroad to study as we can prohibit them from receiving religious education at the same time we should certainly develop our religious institutes to train experts of examine studies in the north caucuses i believe a key aspect will be to establish a secular islamic institute through the north caucasus federal university or another regional institution. macwrite for a lot has been now said about democracy and it like bennett meant in our country and most people believe that sooner or later we'll reach the western style democracy in the cookies but centuries that have been in the queue since which i'm very difficult to be rooted out these institutions that tend to lean comprehensive but that with the mentality that is the tape system islamic jimmy a particular new. does this kind of a society where we need
2:42 pm
a western style democracy. there is a list of i don't know what a western style democracy is the west itself has various kinds of democracy in the political interpretation of democracy but everyone wants to impose their vision of democracy on other country singers and i'm totally against it i believe russia has its own form of democratic development for our republics i wouldn't dramatize the situation regarding the peculiarities of the north caucasus but there is perhaps one significant difficulty which we should gradually give up if this is not an activism which over the past twenty years was reimpose in the caucasus for some reason i'm talking about the fact that executive power structures of our regions are being established according to the identity this is the most acute issue which subsequently brings up speculation about clans and corruption of executive power bodies should be stopped or supporting to professional rather than ethnic principles and asked for ethnic features traditions culture and religion are these aspects should be manifest in the parliaments for people to generate laws and with
