The Russian president gave a specific explanation for the protests in the country.
“This statistic is being used right now. Just as fatigue, accumulated anger and dissatisfaction strike people in every country in the world, including us.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a conversation with the editors-in-chief of the press, details of which were published on Russian news on Rosy 24 on Saturday night.
In his view, the protests held by Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny are attempts by Russia’s opponents to exploit dissatisfaction among the Russian population, the MTI writes. In recent weeks, tens of thousands have demanded the release of the imprisoned Kremlin-critical opposition. The protests, which were directed in part against Putin, produced more than 11,000 people. By Sunday, Navalny’s supporters announced another form of protest: they called on people to show their solidarity with the opposition politician by standing tall in front of the houses with their flashlights on high.
Power-hungry people in the post-Soviet area
According to the Hungarian state news agency, he also spoke at the briefing to the editors-in-chief that the West would use Russia’s ambitious and power-hungry people to prevent Russia’s influence from expanding in the post-Soviet region.
He said the expansion of influence is a cause for concern among Western countries and will try to deter Russia, whose opponents and potential opponents have always relied on ambitious and power-hungry people for this purpose. Putin stressed that as the country strengthened, Russia’s policy of arresting it had strengthened. “As the situation stabilized, we began to get back on our feet, the policy of arrest immediately began. Just then, little by little, unnoticed, in small steps, but more and more. And the stronger we got, the stronger the policy of arrest.” He added that all this is reflected in the economic field.
