MOSCOW, September 21 (Itar-Tass) — Founder of the Congress of Russian Communities (KRO) Dmitry Rogozin, who is currently Russian permanent representative to NATO, urged KRO members to support Vladimir Putin at the upcoming elections.
Speaking at the KRO congress on Wednesday, Rogozin said the Motherland-Congress of Russian Communities public organisation had no political instruments for taking part in the elections and should have to use possibilities to form a coalition with other political forces.
“I made the choice. My choice is [leader of United Russia] Vladimir Putin,” Rogozin said, adding that not only political contacts but also human relationship “unite us. I believe that he [Putin] should be supported amidst the current political situation”.
He stressed that the KRO key task “is to team up with power not so much with parliament as into executive power where there are many people who think as we do”.
At the same time, he said any coalition should be based on serious agreements, which take into account the KRO programme. “Our main task is to start uniting the whole Russian world and organise legal discussions on inter-ethnic relations,” Rogozin said.
