MOSCOW, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia will demand that a Russian ambassador should be recalled from Latvia that wants to introduce criminal punishment for justification of the Soviet occupation, LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said on Wednesday.
He called provocative the actions of the Latvian parliament, “where the legal commission approved amendments to the Criminal Code envisaging three-year punishment for justification of the Soviet occupation.”
“This is disgusting, we saved them and the whole Europe from fascism,” Zhirinovsky said. “We will demand that our ambassador should be recalled for consultations and measures to be taken to prevent adoption of the law in the parliament. Three more readings of the bill and the president’s signature are ahead, but we need to react," the politician added.
