MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is convinced that the state should not be cruel, it should show forgiveness.
“The state should be forgiving, we will think about it,” the Russian president said at the Russian literary assembly in reply to the question about the defendants of the Bolotnaya riots criminal case.
Meanwhile, he noted that “everybody should know that there is a limit, the red line, which one cannot cross.” “The state should not be cruel. But the state should supervise all to observe the rules,” the president noted.
He gave as an example the actions of the Greenpeace activists on the offshore oil drilling rig Prirazlomnaya as an illegal act. The president noted that these people not only threatened the security of the drilling rig, causing an emergency situation on the drilling rig, but also attacked the border guards, trying to oust them. Putin reminded of the proverb that any means are good to an end. “This is not our method,” he noted.
Commenting on the proposal made at the meeting to reinstate a committee for pardoning, Putin noted that these agencies are working, and the president regularly signs the acts of pardon.
The Russian literary assembly is held at the Russian University of Peoples’ Friendship, bringing together the broadest range of the literary community on Thursday.
