Racism in Russia appears mainly in the form of negative attitudes and actions by some Russians toward people who are not ethnically Russian.

Over the years, human rights organisations have reported numerous racist attacks. As at last year, there were actually 177 reported violent acts against blacks since 2008. According to Sova, Africans are the third-largest ethnic group to be targeted by racists in Russia.

Racism is the prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
