PARIS, December 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian authorities should maintain dialogue with the opposition and avoid violence, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Sunday.
“We urge Russian authorities to maintain dialogue (with people) and avoid violence. The opposition should be permitted to stage demonstrations,” he said live on the TV-5 Monde television channel in comments on multi-thousand rallies in protest against the results of the elections in the State Duma staged in many Russian cities last weekend.
Russian authorities should “draw conclusions before upcoming presidential elections,” the French foreign minister added.
