Russian election protests
Russian human rights activist: "international community is making a serious mistake in dealing with Russia"
"The whole international community is making a serious mistake in dealing with Russia. The mistake could be fatal. You should exert pressure on Russia, and not to make a fuss about it. I am not referring to military pressure. Politicians know how to exert pressure.
Being recently in France, I participated in a discussion. All my speeches failed there. I said: "You Europeans are constantly casting spells on universal values - human and civil rights, but do you observe them yourselves? I say no.
In late September, Putin already appointed himself as a new Russian president. In March, fraudulent elections will be held , and all the world leaders will congratulate Vladimir Putin.
I said: "Are not you ashamed to congratulate the person who has not won any elections, but appointed himself to this position? "A European raises and says: "This will be done according to the protocol". "That's the heart of the matter: a protocol is the highest universal value for you", I said. They were offended".
