MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has described as irresponsible the European politicians’ behavior regarding the migration crisis.
"I was there not very long ago. I show up there not very often by virtue of the well-known reasons. All European politicians I talked to at the Munich forum confessed, looking down at the floor: ‘Yes we failed.’ In reality, the European politicians and the EU leadership displayed irresponsible behavior," Medvedev said.
According to him, the traditional way of life in Europe is falling apart because of the migrant crisis, and Russia cannot be indifferent to this.
"This is a huge burden. The people who have fled the war went to Europe go get benefits. The result is that the traditional lifestyle in Europe is falling apart, and this is a very dangerous phenomenon. I say once again that we cannot be indifferent to this," Medvedev said.
The Russian prime minister noted that Russia understood the threat of uncontrolled migration. He added that the migration rules in Russia were not liberal, and after what happened in Europe it was necessary to take a tougher stance on migration laws.
