MOSCOW, December 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Moscow would react adequately to any separatist remarks or actions aimed at alienating Russian territory. “We cannot ignore such things. We should always respond to such remarks, let alone, actions,” the president told law students from Moscow institutions of high learning at a meeting held at the Moscow State University.
He emphasized that a degree of protection should also be adequate. Putin gave an example from history. “In Rome, people were executed for theft but most thefts took place during executions,” the president said.
He added that he did not know exactly how separatist calls should be tackled. “This is up to the professional community to decide,” the Russian head of state noted
Putin recalled that Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov had suggested bringing criminal charges for calls to separatism.
“This matter should be submitted to discussion, including parliamentary debates,” Putin said in conclusion.
