"The first is Arab, the second is English. Great number of various nationalities that confess Islam live in Russia, even in the Sverdlovsk Region. So radical agitators focus on these territories," Starostin said in his lecture to foreign students on preventing recruiting youth to radical Islam movements held in Yekaterinburg.
