According to the authors of numerous publications, the Draft Strategy for the Development of the North Caucasian Federal District (SKFO) recently approved by Vladimir Putin brings forth for the first time on the official level the issue of reduction of the share of “Christian” population in the territory of the Federal District.
It also proposes to create a special Public Labour Migration Agency that would be engaged in the organisation of resettlement of jobless and needy residents from the North Caucasus to the Russian regions.

The Ministry of Regional Development was appointed responsible for the development of the Strategy. One can find the Draft Complex Strategy of the North Caucasian Federal District until 2020 on the Internet site of the Ministry of Regional Development in the list of official documents.

The Press-Service of the Ministry of Regional Development refused to answer the questions put by Radio Freedom noting at the same time that they are familiar with publications on this issue and are not preparing any refutations.
