MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Members of Russia’s silent opposition are now engaged in terrorism, executing their fellow countrymen, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.
He made the statement as he was commenting on Telegram on the terrorist attack that took place in St. Petersburg on April 2. The official also said that it is the forces that the West had recently regarded as the best people of the time and the opponents of the "authoritarian regime," the fearless knights of justice and fight against corruption that are engaged in terrorism.
"Here’s the creme de la creme of our non-systemic opposition: It’s waging war on its own people, it’s engaged in explosions and assassinations," Medvedev said.
According to the official, "these scum not only wish for Russia to be defeated," but also "execute their countrymen."
Medvedev said members of the silent opposition murdered an unarmed reporter, wounded several dozens of innocent spectators at his event, opened fire on a car with children that were going to a village school, and blew up a car with a female reporter and a researcher.
"History has come full circle. This swine has taken its final place in the chronicles of our country," he said.
The Security Council official called attention to the fact that the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks say they were used.
"This is probably true," he said.
But, he said, the perpetrators of terrorist attacks will be duly punished.
"But, so far, the main scum who fed and financed the killers, who dictated their plans remain unpunished," he wrote on his Telegram channel. "Various FBK (recognized as an extremist organization in Russia) and MBK (recognized as a foreign agent — TASS), the Navalny, Volkov, Ponomarev and Khodorkovsky outfits have become petty terrorists and murderers" and "have pledged their allegiance to evil and terror, along with the murderers of their kindred Kiev Nazi regime."
"There can be no talks with terrorists. They will be exterminated like rabid dogs foaming at the mouth. No need to sugarcoat it. As soon as possible. Even if it takes years. They deserve no mercy or forgiveness. This is what supreme justice is all about," he said.
