On Wednesday, deputy interior minister of Russia, colonel-general Sergei Shchadrin told that the activities aimed at prevention of the crimes committed by the youth extremist organisations members are conducted in two directions.
"We know the names, places, time, aim and motivations. We study these people closely. However, according to the last detainments, extremist groups often include citizens of other regions jf the country. It is necessary to look into the case of every suspect and judge him or her only by their crimes," Shchadrin said.
Shchadrin noted that another direction of this work is preventive measures and protection of the places where representatives of such organisations might appear.
"We have no right to detain every "suspicious" young man. Each case must be substantiated. If things do not go like this - it is the violation of law," Shchadrin stressed.
