MOSCOW, January 22, 23:30 /ITAR-TASS/. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday in an interview with the CNN he is concerned by the difference of Russians’ and foreigners’ views regarding the situation with democracy in this country.
“I have the impression that situation existing in reality here in Russia and its interpretation from the outside is taken from two parallel worlds,” he said. “I’m somewhat concerned about it although I agree that we should understand one another and speak the same language if we want to develop in the community of contemporary democratic states.”
Medvedev recalled he did say one day that freedom was better than non-freedom.
“I abide by the same option today and there can be no doubts about it,” he said, adding that any talk about the ostensibly gloomy and burdensome situation in the country or the suppression of human rights has nothing to do with the actual state of affairs.
