MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) – The Kremlin hopes that a constructive opposition will appear the country sooner or later, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 news television channel.
“The opposition should exist, it should generate a constructive opposition agenda,” he said. “I hope that sooner or later such opposition will appear in our country,” the press secretary added.
Peskov complained such opposition forces have not yet appeared in Russia. “The people ready to assume responsibility have not appeared yet,” he said. “We have no opposition with which it would be possible to conduct a constructive dialogue, and it is impossible to conduct a constructive dialogue with the void,” he said.
The Kremlin press secretary also urged not to overestimate the importance of the opposition sentiments. “The Moscow agenda cannot reflect the all-Russian sentiment, so the ‘white ribbon’ sentiments should never be exaggerated,” Peskov said.
“It is totally erroneous to say that it is the general discontent,” the press secretary of the head of state is certain. “There are always some disgruntled and they should express dissatisfaction, if this discontent is constructive, and even better if it contains constructive proposals for ways out of the existing difficulties, that is, if it is not unbridled discontent,” Peskov said.
“So I would not transfer these sentiments to the nationwide scale. Russia is a very diverse, rich in ideas country to be obsessed by a single point of view,” added the RF president’s press secretary.
