Whose you are, Stavropol?2011-12-27 19:32
Even before Valery Gajewski, when Stavropol was ruled by Governor Alexander Chernogorov with his wife - a native of Dagestan, there was a rumor that the province was sold to Dagestanis. Now, even when statistics show the outflow of the Russian population, the relationships of locals with immigrants from neighboring countries are becoming increasingly strained. And what is typical - now not the locals complain about violations of their rights but migrant workers. It turns out that the courts deprive them of their registration, and the Cossacks are expelling them. GTimes' correspondent Svetlana Bolotnikov found out what it looks like on the example of Budennovsky district.
In 2010, in Budennovsky district there lived 83 percent of Russian population. In 2011, there remain 79 percent. In one year, 4 percent of population departed. If such a pace remains, after 10 years in the east of Stavropol there would be less Russians than other nationalities. Who are these people, replacing the departing and dying Slavs? Basically - the representatives of the peoples of Dagestan, whose numbers in localities are already close to 20 percent. Only Budennovsky district receives up to 300 Dagestani families annually.
The Dagestanians began to resettle to the Stavropol Territory in the Soviet years. But that time, in parallel with all national differences, they were united Soviet people with the Russians. And now they have their own religion, their dress code, their code of behavior, ill-fitting in the Russian reality. Dagestani youth is rude with elderly, solicits young girls, arranges dancing in the night and provokes clashes with the peers. Not everyone behaves this way, of course, but many. That's why the "silent occupation", as they called this migration in the east of the region in 90s, becomes increasingly loud and causes protest.
Last year the whole country learned about ethnic conflict in Zelenokumsk, when the Cossacks defended the girl, almost raped by the Chechens with the IDs "Kadyrov's bodyguard". After that, the Cossack associations were allowed to patrol settlements in the Stavropol region together with the police. They said that the Cossacks could be armed, but things are out there.
