Moscow, January 12, Interfax – The attack on a synagogue in Moscow resulted from the insufficient response of law enforcement agencies to radical nationalist groups, Holocaust Fund President Alla Gerber told Interfax on Thursday.

“First and foremost, this is a result of the inability of our law enforcement agencies, which have been unwilling to stop occurrences of Nazism in this country for many years,” Gerber said.

“I think that the incident was unfortunately completely predictable. The increasingly frequent crimes perpetrated on ethnic grounds and attacks by skinheads using Fascist slogans and swastikas in many Russian regions finally resulted in the Wednesday incident at the synagogue,” she said. MORE.
