MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin condemned the release of Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi’s murder footage.
“Look, almost the entire Gaddafi family was killed, his dead body was shown on all channels around the world. What an abominable sight,” Putin said on Wednesday, October 26.
In his opinion, “people inside the [mass media] community should understand what they do and bear responsibility for that, primarily a moral one.”
Putin was particularly shocked and disgusted by the footage showing “a man all covered with blood, still alive, being finished off” and “all this appears on the screens. None of the world religions, Christianity, Judaism or Islam, has anything like this in its moral principles”.
“I am not talking about the political aspect. This is a separate topic – a civil war is underway there. But it’s not good that all this appears on the screens for millions of people, including children, to see,” Putin said.
