welcome back with r.t. live from moscow with me. a recap of the headlines police fired tear gas and demonstrators in athens as the nation's brought to a standstill by a nationwide strike state services have been paralyzed after thousands of civil servants walked off their jobs in protest a new social contacts. russia and china block a un resolution against syria which european backing moscow says the targeting of the massive use is based on confrontation and not a push for peace. thousands across the u.s.

the voice of their anger at corporate money and its influence on the government the time of soaring unemployment level unions are now joined in the chorus of disapproval. for the north caucuses remains russia's most a volatile region with terror attacks happening almost daily corruption and a poor quality of life are often blamed for causing violence next we talked to the president's special envoy to the north caucasus about how the situation in the region is being improved. ponding thank you so much for being with us today thank you got a president who did and said that one of the key problems many countries including russia face to the right in confronting the tension and criminality many russians
8:32 am
associate the root of beef problems with the kooky you were entrusted to seek advice what can we do about it. the girl said was i strongly object to your putting it this way that the caucus is the epicenter of the ethnic crime 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 is another important issue we have to tackle today is migration migration unfortunately or perhaps on the contrary locally is an economic process strictly speaking modern russia has two major centers today moscow and st petersburg perhaps another two or three cities admirations that abandon competitive business opportunities jobs and everything related to this the 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 the same can also be said of education today the most popular and
8:33 am
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 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 or so 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 cultures cannot always adapt to living in the capital and other big cities we should concentrate on this problem what would have to interconnect have questions for you the past one of the bad the outflow of the russian speaking population from the north cork they've in fact it's not only students that migrate to the big city but also all types of common citizens the contraband is crosses to that of siberia or the far east
8:34 am
because unlike these regions the cope with it has to do with ethnic cultural insulation 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 cork this. let's look at this problem from another angle who benefits from the migration of the russian speaking population if you think the republic of pakistan or the chechen republic or any other constituent entity benefits from it you are fundamentally wrong they need a russian speaking population like great or air because the russian language is a 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 the state should deal with this by creating new competitive jobs or we believe that the state development program for the north caucasus should focus on creating conditions that would facilitate an
8:35 am
inflow of russian speakers into the region it's in our immediate interest to work on this and what is particularly encouraging republics are interested in creating such conditions to. fall in august a high ranking french delegation visited the north caucuses and announced their decision to invest considerable funds in developing two reasons that could this result in building a cloth of two or three thoughtful gifts connected from the rest of the region where memory and lawlessness still persist are you saying that there will be a zone where. own order will be installed and chaos and misery everywhere outside that zone i'm asking you this scenario with possible person of course not 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 lifts and five star hotels will inevitably fall flat if we disenfranchise the indigenous population the local population must be involved
8:36 am
in all of these developments but how do we do that first of all we must get out of what i call the starship troopers that's up to ten thousand john people who will be employed in the tourism and service sector these people must be local and live in the areas where these mountain skiing clusters will be developed second from any residential areas located around those 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 in the conference that there were also explosions in austria while infrastructure was being built the local population he says was also terribly upset until a thorough he's managed to involve locals in what was going on before the project had incurred great difficulty. to corny and he said to be thoughtful many
8:37 am
investments people and even stated mission is key terrorists to ensure their safety and the back money later you can finance terrorist attacks what can be done about that when even the pressure than civilians have to pay terrorists a player of the greater proportion of gold i would say it has to do with a certain lack of trust in the business people have in the ability of federal authorities to protect them from criminal extortion networks recently active in the caucasus the situation however. is 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 i've talked to several leaders of north caucasus republics and that opinions differ on some of them say negotiations with terrorists i'm necessary well
8:38 am
i think that there is no talking to terrorists do 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 woods and haven't committed any crimes yet if there's a chance to bring them back from 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 and 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 but once they take a gun and commit a crime there's nothing to talk to them about actually how many terrorists operate throughout the north caucuses today. we like giving numbers but it's actually very difficult to make a difference between bandits and terrorists 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 older north caucasus republics we
8:39 am
are aware of these gang leaders and we've been working federally on their cases i will form and they funded from within the conscious or by other country. was a. recent analysis shows the abroad domestic funding ratio is about ten to ninety the latter being russia they don't need the support of international organizations and other worldwide terror networks such as al-qaeda the money they extort from business represents. it's confound them 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 for western foundations charities and human rights organizations these funds are used among other things to finance radical religious literature and a number of ballad leaders who exploit children for profit in the caucasus. and mystically one 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 the
8:40 am
lines were down between their spiritual freedom and they realized they shunned the citizens of a circular state with worth. agreed his words. fortunately this 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 but a number of other countries having lived in study 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 feels lost amid these realities 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 have practically made a decision on providing active adoptive work for these people you know until these people are really fully adopted to secular laws and to particular rules and
8:41 am
principles of behavior until they're prepared to follow these laws they have no right to take any position in any state unisa pool or regional structure nor to do business they have to go through a certain adaptation system first unfortunately there is no legislative base for this it's a very complicated process it requires a lot of patience 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 that's the same time we should certainly develop our religious institutions to train exports of exotic 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. and that have been now said about democracy and it abandonment in our country and most people believe that sooner or later we'll reach the best in style democracy in the cookies but centuries that have been in think
8:42 am
you shouldn't which are very difficult to do to that leave you think you should that tend to lean comprehend people do but the mentality that is that take this stem islamic jimmy out and keep it in. systems just kind of the society really needs a western style democracy. i don't know for 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 countries i'm totally against it i believe russia has its own former democratic development for our republics i wouldn't dramatize the situation regarding the peculiarities of the north caucasus there is perhaps one significant difficulty which we should gradually give all this is a certain optimism which over the past twenty years was reimposing the caucasus for some reason i'm talking about the fact that executive power structures of our regions are being established according to as nick identity this is the most acute issue which subsequently brings up speculation about clowns and corruption of
8:43 am
executive power abilities should be stopped according to professional rather than ethnic principals has been asked for ethnic features traditions culture and religion these aspects should be non-offensive the parliaments or people should generate laws and reflect the diversity that exists in the republic and in the caucuses generally and it's disappointing thank you very much for this interview. even the books if this can shed light on the sacred. is the cat's life. whether it is a buddhist practice. or a shamanistic which. crossroads of children a child's. faith is strong a spirit is hard. it
