Vladmir Putin tells stop meddling to West

Posted on: November 28, 2011


Vladimir Putin yesterday issued a blunt warning to the West not to interfere in Russia’s forthcoming elections.

Mr Putin accused Western countries, including Britain, of meddling by giving financial grants to Russian democracy and human rights groups, and by sending observers to monitor elections.

He branded Russians who accept such grants as “Judases”, adding: “It would be better if [Western countries] used this money to pay off their national debt and stop conducting an ineffective and costly foreign policy.”

Mr Putin, 59, made the remarks at a rally in which he accepted the nomination to represent his United Russia party as its presidential candidate in March. Dmitry Medvedev, the current president, is expected to swap jobs with him as prime minister.

Mr Putin’s enemies insist his party is full of corrupt bureaucrats, and claim ballot-rigging has already begun for the parliamentary elections next Sunday. – Daily Mail
