It's much more of an issue West of the Urals than East of it! I highly doubt they'd mess around in a place like Tuva (a Siberian province which is majority Asian descent and HAS BY FAR Russia's highest homicide rate), and I doubt the people (whether ethnic Russians or others) in the East would tolerate that BS! And with the coming of the 2018 World Cup, I can see Putin's government stepping up a crackdown on the skinheads coming soon!

Which of those points do you think has any relevance to the topic of the conversation, and why?

Tuva has a population of 300,000, mostly throat-singers and, apparently, murderers. You think they are on the cutting edge that modern, trendy Russians are looking to for societal guidance to lead them through 21st Century enlightenment??

I'm only stating facts that I read on the issue, in response to someone who seemed to be implying that the whole Russia is crawling with neo-Nazi groups who hunt down minorities like it's a sport (which is blatantly false if that is what he/she's trying to get at). Most sources that have been following the neo-Nazi issue in Russia agree that the attacks they've perpetrated are most of the time in cities WEST of the Urals, and not East of it... Take it or leave it!

The thing I said about Tuva is simply conjecture, a way to further emphasize that not all of Russia is crawling with them, and that there are places there that even the most hardened neo-Nazi would never dare tread!
