During the meeting with the new composition of the Public chamber of the Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin urged not to fear of political protests aimed at solving specific identified problems. According to him, it is necessary to distinguish “the-promotion” of opposition of those performances where the participants want to achieve concrete results.
The President of Russia Vladimir Putin met with the new members of Public chamber, and shared with them thoughts about social control and socializing with people – that is, the main functions of that body should take. The head of state has warned members of the OP from working with Western agencies, but also called not to fear and not to ban political protests.
– If this political activity is aimed at a genuine attempt to improve the situation, the real showdown any problems, you don’t have to be afraid of. Because the country is big. It is from these offices there is not still see what is happening. And if people see it and declare it — and what to shy? I think it does not need to be afraid, – said Vladimir Putin.
According to him, it is necessary to share the specifics of those or other protests.
Campaign actions are different. If it is a clear speculation on the problems for their own promotion, then this is not the best kind of political activity, – said Putin, speaking about the leaders of the opposition movement, which often use political action for self-display.
Are the words of the President, and there is a well known practice that is associated with the perception of demonstrations as a threat. So I wouldn’t say that their time will no longer be afraid. The situation can change if we make it clear that preventing opposition rallies is punishable and for shares it is necessary to create favorable conditions – but it seems it is not. As well as how to make use of force against participants even unauthorized actions as restrained. I think today’s words, it was a demonstration of the fact that the President doesn’t want all the actions of the opposition were exclusively related to him that everyone treated only to the conduct of the Kremlin, – explained the analyst.
According to Makarkin, the implementation of the recommendation of the President, a lot depends on the specifics of the regions. If the situation is calm, the government is confident, she was comfortable in the shares of the opposition. But if people do not feel very confident, they begin to worry and to be safe.
