KISLOVODSK, January 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Creation of regional parties will “rock the country”, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warned.
Putin recalled that he had always advocated the creation of national parties but never objected to smaller ones.
“Of course, we should allow people who do not have a large number of supporters to state their position and say so straightforwardly, not only by running along the streets and scarring people but in regions and at public forums. This must be done,” Putin said at the Forum of the Peoples of South Russia on Monday, January 23.
At the same time, he stressed that one should do so “very carefully”.
“Very small ones will do no good either. We must not create regional, republican and national parties. We need to multinational and nationwide political structures that would think about the development of territories, focusing primarily on national problems,” the prime minister said.
Putin stressed that “if we, God forbid, move towards building republican or territorial parties, this would be a very dangerous road to travel, as it will rock the country.”
