Due to the many nationalities and ethnicities living together peacefully, intelligent and sensitive policing by local law enforcement and insightful cultural and religious policies on the part of the regional government, cases of xenophobia and religious extremism are rare in the Republic of Tatarstan, and in Kazan especially, and are immediately dealt with by the authorities.
This is exemplified in particular by the smooth running of the Summer Universiade in 2013 and the World Aquatics Championships in 2015 which both passed without incident, as well as the many other significant international events which take place in the city and the ever-growing flow of tourists wishing to see the sights of Tatarstan for themselves.
Derevnya Universiady, where competition participants will be staying, will be fully attended by law-enforcement personnel with all the necessary equipment. They will respond quickly and effectively to any threats to security which may arise.
