      RUSSIAN COMMUNITY IN BASHKORTOSTAN CRITICAL OF REPUBLIC'S
      NONCOMPLIANCE WITH FEDERAL LAWS. The leader of a moderate Tatar
      nationalist group in Ufa, Ayrat Giniyatullin, head of the Tatar
      Public Center, told RFE/RL on 27 April that the lack of a Tatar
      newspaper in the region is a "major problem" for Tatars living
      in Bashkortostan, but a new newspaper has now emerged. That
      newspaper, with a print run of 50,000, is printed in Chelyabinsk
      in place of the closed Idel-Ural newspaper that had been
      subjected to pressure from local authorities. Meanwhile, an
      independent Russian newspaper in Ufa, "Otechestvo," criticized
      local Bashkortostan authorities' failure to harmonize its law
      with federal laws as a "threat to Russia's integrity," RFE/RL's
      Ufa correspondent reported. JAC
