YAROSLAVL, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev believes that the rights of people cannot be restricted for the sake of combating threats. He has made a statement at a plenary meeting of the Global Policy Forum in Yaroslavl on Thursday.
“Today the temptation to get down to tightening the screws again is great as never before,” he noted. “There are always many reasons for this – crime, separatism, poverty – and this is always a simple response,” the president noted.
“But what to do? As one used to say before - to consolidate closer around the country’s leadership and tighten the screws? The idea is not in this,” he underlined.
“The rights of people cannot be restricted and moreover, the criticism cannot be suppressed,” Medvedev stated.
