Federal Agency on Affairs of nationalities has developed a Handbook on the interaction of employees of Executive authorities and law enforcement agencies with religious organizations, said the press service of the Agency.

According to the press service, the manual is intended for employees of the Executive authorities and law enforcement agencies and contains information about the main traditional religions of the peoples of Russia, as well as less numerous and relatively new religious denominations.

“The guide includes information about centralized religious organizations, including their contact details, and recommendations on interaction of Executive authorities and law enforcement agencies with religious associations in the sphere of combating religious extremism and other anti-social religious activities”, — stated in the message.

Considerable attention was paid to topical issues of state legislation on religion, including the latest changes, which came into force with the adoption of amendments to the Federal law “On combating terrorism”, the criminal code, the criminal procedure code of the Russian Federation and certain legislative acts relating to the establishment of additional counter-terrorism measures and public safety.

It is noted that the manual was developed in conjunction with the Ministry of internal Affairs and the Ministry of justice. In the near future will be issued methodological recommendations on the procedure for the construction of religious buildings, coordination with the public, interested authorities and religious organizations.
