organizations working on problem of racism and xenophobia participated
in the Session. The MBHR director spoke about the situation in Russia,
suggested ideas of cooperation with European structures within the
limits of the EU project on resistance to racism and xenophobia in
Russia. This project is supported by the chairman of the Parliamentary
Assembly of the Council of Europe Mr. Rene van der Linden. In his
official statement he told that “one of priorities of my work is
strengthening of links with civil society on NGOs which contribute in
human rights monitoring at the local level and increase the level of
public knowledge of this problem. Many kinds of the Council of Europe
