Tula, March 11, Interfax - Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill deems it necessary to pursue efforts aimed at cultural adaptation of multiple foreign migrants arriving to Russia.

"We should not disregard tension issues in our social life, in particular, relations between local citizens and non-residents who have different ethnic and cultural traditions", Patriarch Kirill said Wednesday at the meeting of the State Council in Tula.

According to Patriarch, the state needs to adopt special measures for social adaptation of non-residents, including Russian language training, involving them in social events, and acquainting them with Russian religious and cultural traditions.

Patriarch mentioned that today's society still faced the danger of the growing rate of "ethnic crimes resulting from attempts to monopolize certain kinds of enterprise by ethnic groups."

Head of the Russian Church addressed the problem of expanding extremist attitudes among young people. According to Patriarch, "the best way to fight extremism is to involve young people in performing real tasks and allow them to take control of their own destiny and the destiny of economy, politics, science and culture."

"Our objective is to attract inventive young people to create a better life within this country, rather than beyond its borders," Patriarch said.
