MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has welcomed young active people to take to streets to speak out their position.
“If it is the result of the Putin regime, it is good and I am happy with that,” he said on Thursday in a question-and-answer session broadcast by the national television.
“The fact that people speak out their attitudes towards ongoing processes is an absolutely normal thing if everything is staying within the boundaries of law,” Putin said. “I hope it will be like this further on.”
“As for the opposition’s discontent [with the election returns], there is nothing new here,” he went on. “It has always been and will always be. The opposition is seeking to gain power and uses any pretext to approach the current authorities, to accuse, to point to errors; it is quite a normal thing.”
“I think the election results obviously mirror the actual political situation in the country,” he added.
