BRUSSELS, November 3. /TASS/. Over 30 activists gathered for a rally outside the European Parliament in Brussels in support of Sunday’s elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.
“The European Parliament that considers itself as the main citadel of democracy in Europe has already said it will not recognize Sunday’s elections. But what is the price for its democracy if it refuses to acknowledge the direct expression of will of over 1 million people who stood in long queues to vote?” said Kris Roman, who chairs the Euro-Rus movement.
“Well, the European Parliament may say whatever it wants. People in eastern Ukraine do not care if the European lawmakers recognize their will or not,” he said.
Besides the natives of Russia and Ukraine who currently live in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, the event was also attended by residents of Belgium.
“People in the West learn how to think in the same way. The elections in various countries of the world are divided into the bad or good ones, and out elite backed by mass media tries to persuade all of us to believe in this,” one of Belgian participants of the rally said.
“Thanks to such a democracy, the West will soon turn into the community of people with electronic chips in their heads which will allow special services to follow where each person is, what he or she does and thinks. I have come here to voice my support for Russia, which today is the only real counterweight to this liberal dictatorship,” the activist said.
Pickets outside the European Parliament with the flags of Russia and Novorossiya are held in Brussels every 2nd day of a month to remember those who died in Ukraine’s Odessa on May 2.
