Russia to report on anti-Semitism in Europe

According to Interfax news agency, report by Russian Federation Council's International Affairs Committee would be submitted to Council of Europe

Mikhail Margelov, the head of the Russian Federation Council's International Affairs Committee, is expected to submit a report on the increasing threat of anti-Semitism in Europe to the Council of Europe, the Russian Interfax news agency reported last weekend.


“One of the Russian priorities as the president of the Council of Europe is to strengthen mutual understanding and tolerance across Europe,” Margelov told journalists in Moscow.


"Tolerance in European society, including in Russia, is weakening," he said, adding that "the threat of anti-Semitism is an issue one must speak about."
