MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that all people were free to express their opinion but clarified that the state must restore law and order to prevent chaos if law was violated.
“Any such actions (mass actions) should be within the law. If anyone breaks the law, the state is obliged to restore order. I would like to emphasize that this is not the will but an obligation of state power bodies. Otherwise, we will run the risk of plunging into chaos,” Putin told a “grand” news conference in Moscow.
That may have a negative impact on economy and social sphere, Putin said as he answered a question what political decision he would have made if unauthorized actions had taken place on the Cathedral Square or Red Square in Moscow.
“I am not going to make any political decisions, I will act in accordance with Russian laws,” Putin said.
