“Recently, politicians and activists in the United States and Western countries have expressed concern about human rights in Russia,” Russian State Duma President Vyacheslav Volokin said Thursday, according to RIA Novosti. And I don’t think the U.S. and the ‘forces’ that fund it are qualified to make such statements, so focus on your own human rights first. ”
Mr Volokin said the West had not made such a statement at the time of Russia’s weakness in the 1990s, when it was in the best interests of the West. And when Russia solved its internal problems and began to expand its influence in the international community, such statements followed. They even refer to terrorists in the Caucasus as “fighters for freedom” because they cannot accept a russia that is becoming increasingly powerful.
