Federation Council criticized protesters for having dual citizenship
According to Senator Andrey Klimov, people who took an oath in other countries cannot express their political position in Russia.
The Head of the interim commission of the Federation Council on protecting state sovereignty and preventing interference in internal affairs, Andrey Klimov, spoke out about participants in an unauthorized Moscow rally on August 10.
According to the Senator, the event was attended by those who looked out of place there. For example, rapper Oksimiron (Oxxxymiron), aka Miron Fedorov, who has dual citizenship and has spent most of his life in Western Europe.
According to Klimov, people who "took an oath in other countries" cannot express their political position in Russia.
“Now, he “suddenly” decided to fight for the rights of candidates to the Moscow City Duma and to do this, use his own popularity to increase the participation in protests in Sakharov Square,” Klimov wrote about the performer.
He added that another “US citizen” was actively providing “legal aid” to the protesters on August 10. According to her, she is often mentioned in stories related to the so-called trafficking of Russian children (their transportation abroad for a fee), Klimov writes.
Klimov recalled that the day before the rally, the US Ambassador was summoned to the Foreign Ministry and rebuked due to the publication of a scheme for holding the previous protest rally (August 3) on the embassy's website.
Klimov compared the "protest coordinators" with the Bolsheviks, who came "to make a revolution in St. Petersburg with the help of the German General Staff", and then drew an analogy with the pro-Nazi rebellion in 1936.
