Now that would be interesting to witness.
Cossacks get call-up to keep out Muslims
THE governor of Russia’s Krasnodar region, which will host the Winter Olympics in 2014, has enlisted the area’s Cossacks as an auxiliary police force, urging them to prevent darker-skinned Muslims from moving there.
Alexander Tkachev, in a speech to police officers on Thursday, announced that as of next month, 1000 Cossacks would be paid from the budget to maintain public order.
He said the Cossacks – whose paramilitary forces served the tsars – could take measures beyond what the police are allowed.
”We have no other way,” he said. ”We shall stamp it out, instil order; we shall demand paperwork and enforce migration policies.”
