Quote: "Often such disputes end with the use of cold weapons or firearms, with fatal consequences.

The reasons for the enmity are fairly commonplace – it is enmity on the basis of the traditional arrogance of [ethnic] Russians to the peoples they have enslaved, and the struggle for the distribution of military equipment."

More details: The National Resistance Center noted that interethnic conflicts tend to escalate particularly rapidly "following excessive alcohol consumption".
