Medvedev calls for new identity that will consolidate Russia

Russian President Medvedev stressed the need to deal with public integration.



Moscow: President Dmitry Medvedev called for creating a new identity that should consolidate Russia.

"Practically all the presentations contained one very true thought that a considerable number of people living in the Caucasus need full integration into the Russian social environment," Medvedev said at a meeting of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights Institutions.

"We should also move towards creating, as has been pointed out quite correctly, a full-fledged Russian identity that would encompass all of our peoples," the President said.

"The task is to create such new Russian identity. If we do not create it, our country will have a gloomy future," he warned.

Medvedev stressed the need to deal not only with security and judicial issues, but also with public, including multinational, integration. "We should build the future that will integrate everyone," he said. Otherwise "there will never be normal life in the Caucasus", he added.
