/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Employees of the Russian Embassy in Armenia met with
the members of the Armenian delegation who took part in the Forum of
Creative and Scientific Intelligentsia of the CIS member states held in
Moscow April 14-15, 2006. As reported by the Embassy's press office,
the Russian officials are convinced that xenophobia is peculiar not
to Russian only. The Russian Embassy in Armenia expressed regret
over the cases of violence against the Russian citizens of Armenian
origin. "Unfortunately xenophobia is an evil that finds expression
in the public life of multi-national states with developed democratic
and social institutes. Thus, the statements on purposeful violation of
rights through national intolerance against Armenians are groundless,"
the statement of the Russian Embassy says in part.
