MOSCOW, February 29 (Itar-Tass) — Encroachment on the rights of the Russian-speaking population in Latvia is no compliment to the European Union, candidate for Russia’s presidency Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with his election agents and representatives of the All-Russia People’s Front on Wednesday.
Focusing on measures to support ethnic Russians living in Latvia, Putin stressed “these must be such instruments of support that would not aggravate the situation of the Russian-speaking population in these countries”.
“We must in no way allow any level of confrontation, we must induce our colleagues to a civilized discussion,” Putin stressed.
