At least 85 people are known to have been killed and 367 injured in hate
crimes so far this year in Russia, according to the Sova Center for
Information and Analysis, a respected nongovernmental organization (NGO)
that tracks racist violence in the country. It seems that racists seem
determined to end the year with a bang.

Rising hostility to migrants, crimes by migrants and against them, and

HARD TIMES AHEAD FOR MIGRANTS IN RUSSIA

While the economic crisis deepens in Russia, there are no reliable
figures as yet for the number of those laid off, and as yet no
statistics for either a crime wave by migrants or hate crimes targeting
them. But observers offer predictions that are not encouraging.   

1. RACIST POLICEMEN AND HOSTILE PUBLIC

2. MIGRANTS MAY NOT TURN TO CRIME YET EXPLOSIONS ARE POSSIBLE

3. PROSECUTION RATE LAGS BEHIND HATE CRIMES

4. KASPAROV: PUTIN & MEDVEDEV OUT BY 2012
