Russia and the Alliance of Civilizations

leave a comment »

I wrote the other day about how Russian growing Muslim population could influence its foreign policy. Well, it’s also influencing its interior policy:

The agreement (value: $1.5 million) provides for grants and stipends to students of Russian Islamic institutes for research, the translation and publication of books on Islam in Russian, and for material support to Islamic institutes.

In addition, the agreement provides for international seminars on “The Role of Russia and the Islamic World in Strengthening the Alliance of Civilizations.”

Meanwhile, three people have been killed, and four hurt in clashes with Caucusus jihadists.
