Murder of an ethnic Russian leads to massive anti-immigrant riot on Moscow...
On the heels of a murder of an ethnic Russian presumably at the hands of Muslim migrant worker has sparked a riot in Moscow reportedly by thousands of Muscovites, many chanting “Russia for Russians,” as reported by both the Moscow-based Russia Today news service and the Paris-based AFP (L'Agence France-Presse) via France24.com on Oct. 13, 2013.
Earlier this past Thursday, 25-year-old Egor Shcherbako was stabbed and slashed to death in front of his girlfriend by an unknown assailant to whom she described to police as a “male native of the Caucasus.”
According to the yet to be identified girlfriend, Shcherbako was attacked by the knife wielding assailant after he stepped forward to defend her from being harassed.
Push Comes To Shove...
Many of whom were chanting “Russia for Russians,” reportedly thousands of young Muscovites took to the streets in the same neighborhood where Shcherbako was knifed to death.
When push came to shove, the situation quickly escalated into a full blown riot between the nationalistic youths and Moscow Special Operations Police which resulted in over 380 of the rioters detained.
Tensions have been running high in the South Moscow area known locally as Biryulyovo, which is quickly becoming the final stop for thousands of overwhelmingly Muslim migrants from the Southern Caucasus Mountains
As cited by the AFP, “hundreds of thousands of migrants have come to Russia from impoverished, Muslim-majority states of the former Soviet Union such as Tajikistan.”
Mother Russia has also been the destination from other hotbeds of Islamic jihad, the Caucasus Mountain region's quasi-independent Russian Republics such as Chechnya, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, North Ossetia and Dagestan.
Closer To The United States...
In what some don't find surprising at all, the Boston Bombing brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are originally from the Islamic jihad-friendly semi-country of Dagestan, officially known as The Russian Federation Autonomous Islamic Republic of Dagestan.
