Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to attend a session of the Interregional Forum of the Russian National Front in the southern city of Stavropol.
Addressing the two-day forum in the Stavropol State Agrarian University on January 24, the head of the Federal Agency for Nationality Affairs, Igor Barinov, said Russia had developed a computer program for quickly responding to ethnic conflicts, Interfax news agency reported.
Putin created the All-Russia People's Front in 2011. It brings together nongovernmental organizations, youth groups, and business associations along with the ruling party.
The Kremlin says Putin will also meet on January 25 with students and teachers at the North Caucasus Federal University to mark St. Tatiana's Day, which is celebrated in Russian as Students Day.
