anti racist Putin flood russia with many non white chinese immigrate

Apr 10, 2008

Chinese workers flood into Russia
As Russia’s economy changes, many locals are coming to terms with the need for thousands of unskilled, foreign workers. Business owners say foreign workers often work long hours and for little money.

Robert Latipov, the Director General of a factory in the Nizhny Novgorod region, is a big fan of foreign workers.

“Their working day is 10 hours long and they work 7 days a week. We pay them a little bit less than the Russians. And the Chinese are highly disciplined, very efficient. They would do whatever you tell them to,” he said.

anti racist Putin apologises for racism
27/09/2005 15:12 - (SA)

Moscow - President Vladimir Putin apologised on Tuesday for racist attacks that have been on the rise in Russia in recent years and promised that law enforcement services would redouble their efforts to stop them.
"I would like to offer my apologies for the incidents that have taken place," Putin said in response to a question on the attacks.

"We are going to intensify law enforcement activities and do everything we can so to make skinheads and fascist elements disappear from the political map of our country," he said.

Racist violence was a source of concern to Russian society at large and to him personally, Putin added.

Racist attacks in Russia, generally targeting people from the Caucasus region and the former Soviet republics of Central Asia as well as foreign students from Africa and Asia, have occurred with increasing frequency in Russian cities in recent years, officials say.

Earlier this month, foreign students protested in the northern city of Saint Petersburg after a Congolese student died as a result of wounds he sustained after being attacked in the street. Authorities said on Monday they had arrested four people in connection with the attack

Putin anti racist antifa nashi help African colleagues:

Quote:
All who care about Russia, help us

When we arrive in Vladimir, Alissa Askalina takes us to the local Nashi headquarters at Lunacharsky Street. It is a new three-storey building, still under construction. But the scene inside is one of tiled floors, modern computer equipment, clean office furniture, and abundant storage space, filled with the smells of fresh paint. Where did they get money to build something like this?

"Companies and business managers who care about Russia help us", is Alissa's answer. Nashi's critics and opponents would prefer to speak about phone-calls from Kremlin instructing Russian corporations and businessmen to pay money to the friendly youth organisation, an offer they would find it difficult to refuse.

It is 6 p.m. and nearly every room in the building is full of young people. In one, on the first floor, more than six girls are engaged in lively discussion with an African student from the Central African Republic. He, like his fellow African students in Vladimir and across Russia, are now concerned about their safety. Racist groups in Russia have attacked dark-skinned people many times.

Nashi's "Antifa" department, driven by its members' idealistic feelings, is ready to help these African colleagues. "In Russian politics", says Anya, "our motivation is the same. We support forces of good, we fight forces of evil."

In a room on the second floor the entire local Nashi group of computer-science students are busy bringing up to date the section of their website (www.nashi.su) related to their activities in Vladimir. This is great, one tells me: she can practice here all the theoretical things she studies at university.

In nearly every room, Vladimir Putin's photos hang on the walls.

Anti racist Putin called for Police to Actively Fight against russian nationalism

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.

Black Idol promote in Putin Russia:

Fabrika Zvezd Russia's version of American Idol :



Star Factory (Russian: Фа́брика звёзд, Fabrika zvyozd) is a Russian television show aired on "Channel One". The show is in the international Star Academy format similar to Operacion Triunfo and Star Academy France.

The show has had six seasons, all of them hosted by Yana Churikova. The show's alumni include Timati, Julia Savicheva, Natalia Podolskaya, Dmitry Koldun, and Elena Temnikova.

In anti racist Putin Russia :
interethnic marriages had grown up

Moscow's Face Is Getting Darker

By Nabi Abdullaev

Staff Writer Editor's note: This is the first of two stories about Moscow's changing ethnic composition.

If existing demographic trends continue, in two generations most Muscovites will have olive skin, dark hair and extended families in the Caucasus and Central Asia, according to a leading institute.

The main reasons for the imminent change to the city's face is that ethnic Russians do not have as many babies as their darker-skinned counterparts and, to lesser extent, the growing number of non-Slavic migrants moving to Moscow, they say.

According to the calculations of the Institute of General Genetics, the ratio between Moscow residents who traditionally practice Christianity and those who profess Islam was 37 to 1 in 1994. In 2000, the ratio had narrowed to 32 to 1, and by 2025 it is expected to shrink to 6 to 1.
The institute counted the large non-Slavic Armenian and Georgian communities as Christian.

The demographic shift is largely due to the reluctance of Slavic women to have large families, said Yelena Pobedonostseva, a researcher at the Institute of General Genetics.

"In 1999, for example, there were only 1.24 births per 100 female Russian Muscovites and 1.36 for Ukrainian Muscovites, while Azeri Muscovites had 5.71," she said.

She said a population group must have a birth rate of no less than 2.2 to avoid extinction.

The city's champions in reproduction were Chechens, with more than 9 births per 100 women a year, and Ingush natives, with about 8 births, Pobedonostseva said.

"For women living in a single city, the difference in birth rates among ethnic groups is explained only by the women's age, health and desire to have children," she said.

Although already low, the birth rate among Slavic women is steadily declining, according to the institute's figures. While it was 1.45 per 100 women in 1994, the rate was closer to 1.7 in 1950 and 2.7 in 1925.

Ethnic Russians accounted for 86.4 percent of all babies born in Moscow in 1994, but that share shrunk to 72.5 percent in 1999. In the meantime, Azeri births jumped from 0.9 percent to 1.3 percent, Chechen births grew from 0.11 percent to 0.46 percent, and Ingush births rose from 0.08 percent to 0.15 percent.

"The actual increase in the non-Slavic population of Moscow may not seem large compared to the total number of Russians in the city, but if the tendency continues, the face of the city will eventually change," Pobedonostseva said.

The number of migrants who register as permanent residents is paltry compared to the overall city's population, but their influx is also helping dilute the Slavic population, said Valery Stepanov, an expert from the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology.

According to the 1989 census, ethnic Russians accounted for 90 percent of the Moscow population, while Armenians and Chechens each held about 0.5 percent, he said.

Most of the tens of thousands of migrants who moved to the capital in the 1990s were ethnic Russians -- by some counts as many as two-thirds, Stepanov said. Armenians and Chechens each accounted for 3 percent, much more than their representation in the 1989 census.

"If this continues, in 50 years every third Muscovite will have a non-Slavic appearance," Stepanov said.

The growing number of migrants has also led to an increase in the number of interethnic marriages. The parents' offspring usually take the dominant genes of the Caucasian natives.

From the 1950s to the 1980s, every sixth marriage in Moscow was interethnic, according to Russian media reports. By 1995, interethnic marriages had grown to 22 percent of all marriages, and they currently are between 30 percent to 40 percent.
City officials said they could not provide figures on marriages, saying they had stopped collecting such information after then-President Boris Yeltsin abolished any reference to ethnicity from new Russian passports in 1997. Also, the ethnicity of brides and grooms is no longer registered.

Ethnicity experts agreed that some marriages were on paper only -- migrants who tie the knot to get Moscow residency permits but do not live with their spouses. But in many cases, they said, Russian women are drawn by the self-confidence and financial security that a number of Caucasus men offer.

"Just watch any talk show and you'll learn what a Russian woman wants from her darling: He must be financially successful, not drink too much and never act like a loser," said Vladimir Pribylovsky, an analyst from the Panorama think tank. "Migrants from the Caucasus match these standards better than average Russians."

While less than 2 percent of all marriages involve Slavic husbands and Caucasus wives -- a percentage that has remained stable for decades -- the number of unions between Slavic women and Caucasus men has skyrocketed, according to the Institute of General Genetics.

Weddings with Armenian grooms tripled to 12 percent of the total between 1980 to 1995, followed by Georgians with 8.7 percent and Azeris with 6.8 percent, the institute said. Ethnic groups from Russia's northern Caucasus region have more than quadrupled to 4.4 percent.

However, about 90 percent of the children born in these marriages identify themselves as Slavic Russians, Stepanov said.

"The perception of ethnicity in Russia is changing from a reference in the passport toward ethnic self-identification," he said. "For non-Slavic people living in Moscow, where the informational and cultural environment is embedded in the Russian language, integration will inevitably mean a change of their ethnic identity."

Anti white pro chinese Putin hand over russia territory to china caused Russia loss into three or four billion dollars

Putin sold out russia territory for more economic cooperation with china



Translation


Vladimir Putin transmitted into the property to China the islands on the river Amur, to which this country has long ago pretended, it communicates on the site of the newspaper “Komsomol truth”.


The President signed the appropriate agreement during his visit to China. According to document, into the property of C.P.R. (Chinese Peoples' Republic) completely passes [Tarabariy] island and part of the island large Ussuri, located in Khabarovsk region. In all to Chinese they will transmit the approximately 337 square kilometers of Russian territory.


As reports “member of the Komsomol”, in exchange for the islands Russia obtained the possibility to increase economic collaboration with the adjacent country. Furthermore, both countries got rid of the political problem, which interfere with good neighborly relations.


Meanwhile as it is noted on the site of the newspaper “time of news”, these islands, by total length into 40 kilometers, they have for Russia strategic value - in the large Ussuri is located the fortified area and the borderguard post, and above The the [tarabarovym] - take-off path of the military aircraft of the 11th army VVS and PVO (Air Defense), which is stationed in Khabarovsk, and also the civil airliners, which depart from the international airport of Khabarovsk.


Now, as notes newspaper, to the flights of aircraft will be required the agreement of Chinese side. As writes “business week”, these territories became questionable after 1991, when the President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev signed boundary agreement with China, according to which the boundary was past on the fairway of Amur. Then in the region of these island remained the sole [nedemarkirovannyy] section.

In the subsequent years China conducted scale irrigational works on a river diversion Amur, as a result of which the duct Of [kazakevicha], which separates islands from the Chinese shore, considerably it shallowed. This led to the fact that actually the islands were connected with the Chinese territory by sand bar.
“In recent years on their shore Chinese elevated about 300 kilometers of dams in order to artificially direct Amur in the necessary for themselves direction, to [obmelit] to the duct Of [kazakevicha], on fairway of which in this section is determined the boundary”, stated the governor of the Khabarovsk Region Victor [Ishaev].


According to the data of economists, the transfer to China islands caused to Russia loss into three or four billion dollars.

Why western WN love anti racist Putin?

QUOTE form stormfront

Quote:
Poison:
From what I observed, the logic appears to be "he (Putin Russia)is disliked by Western media and by many people in US government including many bad Jews, so he must be good". I.e. they misidentify a conflict and geopolitical competition among different factions of anti-whites and internationalists (same as it was in USSR and USA times) as some kind of "good guys vs Jews (USA)" thing. A product of simplistic thinking - inability to realize that enemy of my enemy is not always a friend in real life. Especially so when the conflict (of Putin and "West") is mostly just media smoke and mirrors in the first place

Poison:
There are tons of myths and misconceptions. Fortunately, say, an American WN misguided about who Putin is is a relatively minor problem, it can't do a lot of harm, although it is annoying of course. Most important for them to understand their local issues properly. It's not like Putin appreciates their support or has any use for it. He hates nationalists and would be glad to jail people like those who post here.

The Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese 5% that is probably new, but those others, I bet they are from Soviet Union days, not new. The USSR was huge and had many different types of people.

Tadzhiks, Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Kirghyz 5%.... I'm not sure who they are, but I bet many of them would not stand out in a crowd that much if at all.

Azerbaizhanian 14%...ditto, as with most of the others, but not all. I think you could spot gypsies pretty quick.


To say this is multiculture, like Toronto or New York City, I think is misleading.

That is an interesting figure, some changes must have been made after the collapse that allowed more people from former SSR Republics to live there. As I understand, Moscow, it required permission to live there. None the less, these are mostly all USSR people.

In the EU and N. America, the immigrants/refugees mostly have no previous ties to what was primarily white European lands, with a small % (in N. America) of blacks, Asians (primarily Chinese) and native Indians.

Look up 2002 Demographic Census of Moscow .

Also you're wrong until recently immigration has been low, Russia was nearly completely Russian in the Soviet years. Movement of people generally did not happen. This is recent and thus you are wrong - it's not okay. Also your ridiculous statement that you wouldn't tell the difference between a Tajik/Kirgiz and a Russian is highly offensive and stupid.

Those people, just dressed normally not in traditional/ethnic clothes, I bet many would not stand out that much. At least compared to dumping blacks from the heart of Africa or S. E. Asia primitive remote jungle people, (head choppers) into white areas of Canada or the USA.

Can you ever respond to a post of mine without twisting it completely around?

Ukrainians 8%
Armenians 5%
Chechens, Daghestani, Ingush 4%
Byelorussians 3%
Georgians 3%
Moldavians 3%

Those people, do you think that all of them would stand out like a sore thumb compared to a Russian?

Niggers and Muzzies dress like humans in Europe is your argument that they deserve to be there? Your argument doesn't belong on a WN forum, you're acting like multiculturalism is alright as long as the said people act "normal". Why don't you go to a paleo-con website? They'll welcome you with open arms.

Ukranians wouldn't, some Armenians would, Chechens would (Not White in looks or behavior, highly criminal elements), Byelorussians wouldn't, all Georgians would, some Moldavians wouldn't.

The only true White people on that list are Ukranians and Byelorussians who are very pure.

Ethnic communities in Moscow

Embassy perceives no problems

It should be noted right away that an organized Uzbek diaspora as such does not exist. There is the Embassy and the Consulate General in Moscow, there are lots of Uzbeks and that is all. All attempts to organize them - and there were quite a few - failed to produce the desired results.

Embassy of Uzbekistan is an extremely closed organization. Diplomats are permanently incommunicado. Phones are never answered and if they are, whoever answers inevitably refers the caller to some other official and hangs up. Author of this article reached Embassy Press Secretary Muzaffar Zahidov and asked for an interview for a piece on how people from Uzbekistan live in Moscow and for assistance in general. That was the last time anyone answered the phone in the Embassy.

Some sources say that there is an organization of Uzbeks established by the Embassy. It is an organization of intelligentsia (blue blood). No information on it is to be had for love or money. It stands to reason to assume therefore that it was established just to enable some functionary to make a report and promptly forget all about it. "They arrange soccer matches every now and then - just to create the illusion of existence and activeness. They never meet with immigrants," Oleg Belkov said.

Community of non-Uzbeks from Uzbekistan

A former resident of Tashkent, Oleg Yakovlevich Belkov is the head of the Moscow Uzbek Community. The structure convened its constituent assembly in March 2006 and eventually (with a great deal of trouble) obtained official registration from the Russian Justice Ministry and accreditation with the Moscow Center of Nationalities. Its list of accomplishments so far consists of three or four meetings of immigrants including one concert (without Uzbek music, modern or traditional) and one exhibition...

Unfortunately, the initially proclaimed plans of the Moscow Uzbek Community and its leader have little to do with hard facts of life. "We intend to nurture Uzbek culture (which is of paramount importance) and to actually help former Uzbeks," Belkov told the constituent assembly on March 14. Plans of the Moscow Uzbek Community included consultative, medical, and other assistance to immigrants, organization of concerts and exhibitions, organization of meetings, publication of books and periodicals...

Belkov admits that his actual priorities are somewhat different nowadays. An emphasis is made on propaganda of Uzbek culture and arts, establishment of a theater, unification of Russian-speaking intelligentsia because "culture is the only means of putting the diaspora together," according to Belkov. The Moscow Uzbek Community cannot even boast of more or less regular contacts with the Embassy, leaders of intelligentsia, menial workers, and ethnic Uzbeks as such. Ethnic Uzbeks are issued invitations but never turn up at whatever the Moscow Uzbek Community organizes. As a matter of fact, they prefer to stay clear of the structure - probably because it was established by a Russian even though he used to be a citizen of Uzbekistan once. Belkov himself admits substantial difficulties in communication with ethnic Uzbeks. He says they do not understand one another.

And yet, Belkov claims that his organization is prepared to help immigrants in obtaining registration from the Russian police once a new law on immigration is adopted to make life a little bit easier for immigrants. That's a noble objective but exactly how Belkov intends to accomplish it is anybody's guess.

So, the Moscow Uzbek Community is the only officially registered organization in the capital of Russia. A.D. Haidarov, the leader of St.Petersburg-based Umid, says meanwhile that numerous attempts were made to set up something else. (Uzbek diaspora in St.Petersburg is the subject of another article which is being prepared at this point.) Haidarov says he was regularly approached by "men from Moscow" seeking advice. Alidjan Jahangirovich was ever ready to offer advice. He even suggested the idea of a Moscow regional division of his Umid. Uzbek students of the University of Friendship of Peoples bent on organization of their own society were the last to call Haidarov. Unfortunately, not one initiative group ever appeared again after the initial consultation.

The diaspora (if that is what it is) keeping a low profile, publication of the newspaper Uzbegim in Moscow is certainly an interesting project. This is a newspaper for the Uzbek diaspora and labor immigrants, published in the Uzbek and Russian languages. Five issues have appeared since last autumn. Writer Ulugbek Daliyev is the chief editor, businessman Habib Abdullayev the publisher. The newspaper has its own web site (Uzbegim.ru) where its issues are available along with other features including a forum. A community of former citizens of Uzbekistan is gradually shaping up around the newspaper - without a split into ethnic Uzbeks and Russians. Everyone who ever visited Central Asia or displays interest is also welcome.

Tajik Uzbeks busy

That is essentially all in terms of associations or organizations of former citizens of Uzbekistan in Moscow. There is, however, one other quite interesting organization of Uzbeks. It comprises Tajik Uzbeks. Some background first. The Tajikistan Foundation for Immigration and Law was established in Moscow to assist labor immigrants from this Central Asian country. It is fairly active and efficient. The structure is financed by the Soros Foundation and is literally bombarded with pleas for help. Experienced lawyers, doctors, and other officials are nothing if not highly efficient. The structure does not really care about ethnic origins but it is mostly the Tajiks who appeal for its help. The leader of an informal organization of Tajik Uzbeks approached it seeking help not long ago.

The organization of Tajik Uzbeks is known as Buston. Officially, it is not registered and therefore does nor exist. Its leader has been in Moscow since 1999, menial worker on a construction site at first. He has been busy solving problems of his fellow countrymen for the last eighteen months or so. Momadsaid Urozaliyevich Barlasov is an ethnic Uzbek himself. That is probably why it is mostly Uzbeks who approach him though he would never even consider denying help to others.

Barlasov can help with a great deal of problems. He meets newcomers, finds them lodging and a job, provides financial assistance at first, helps with transaction of salaries to families, raises the necessary sums to get an immigrant released from a police station, and so on. Whenever something more serious occurs (someone hospitalized or jailed in a special detention center for illegal immigrants), Barlasov seeks help from the Tajikistan Foundation for Immigration and Law. He says that it is Tajik youths who find themselves in trouble in Moscow more often than anyone else. "They come here without money. They even speak Tajik with difficulty, and as for Russian - they do not speak it at all," Barlasov said.
What help Barlasov offers is not free, but what really counts is that this is an example of an actually working organization of Moscow Uzbeks.

Appearance of an organization of Uzbeks from Tajikistan (even though it is fairly small for the time being) is probably attributed to how immigrants' families operate. As a matter of fact, immigrants from Tajikistan are so numerous that they have already established several formal and unofficial organizations. The matter concerns self-organization of ethnic Uzbeks who solve what problems they encounter in Moscow either on their own or with help from specialists of the Tajikistan Foundation for Immigration and Law. What also helps is that Tajikistan itself recognizes existence of labor immigration to Russia. These matters are discussed at the government level. Russia and Tajikistan even drew and signed several treaties on the matter.

Immigration from Uzbekistan is not any less considerable, but the problem is ignored. The state does not recognize existence of the problem and does not bring it up. Ditto diplomats. That is why there are no organizations of Uzbeks or former citizens of Uzbekistan in Moscow.

P.S. Uzbek "diaspora" in Internet

Web Site of Uzbek Immigrants (Fromuz.Com) is a vivid example of an informal association. The project was founded in 2003. It is the second most frequently visited web site dealing with immigration and also the second among web sites on Uzbekistan. Established by Oleg Danilov, once a resident of Tashkent, the web site "does not belong to any political force, state, public, or other organization or association." The project offers help to the Uzbeks throughout the world in finding friends and acquaintances and promotes Uzbekistan in the net.
