ST. PETESRBURG, March 27. /TASS/. Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin has said that the offices of Russian banks in Ukraine are being raided with Europe’s tacit consent, which cannot but cause surprise.

"Today they have raided Russian banks, which enjoy respect all over the world. Tomorrow the same may happen to banks of any other country. Today they brick up the staff of Russian banks. Tomorrow they may decide to brick up the staff of other organizations," Volodin warned.

"All this is a reminder of the days when many European countries turned a blind eye on what was happening in Europe in late 1930s. That had a very bad ending."

"These methods being used by one of the member countries of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly are utterly impermissible and we must make a proper assessment of these actions. One cannot but feel curious why all this is allowed to happen with the onlookers’ tacit consent," Volodin said.
