Russia: Xenophobia and Violence

There are 48 comments so far to a post on xenophobia and violence in Russia, over at Sean's Russia Blog. One commenter writes: “It seems to me that the Kremlin gave a green light to the ‘ultra-nationlist’ tendencies of some ethnic Russians by the way it dealt with Georgia and Estonia […]. If the gov’t is telling you its ok to despise people from these Georgia and Estonia, why stop there? Why not lump all foreigners together and treat them like scum.”
