Putin replies to “gang of patriots from United Russia”
The President was the first to pay attention to the question that popped up on the screen.
During the live broadcast nationwide phone-in, the President Vladimir Putin relied to a question: “Where does this gang of patriots from the United Russia lead the country to?” The question popped up on the screen, and the President was the first to pay attention to it.
“I’m sorry I have to react to certain things I’ve seen on the screen,” RBC quotes the President as saying.
Putin emphasized this was a question of a political nature and that’s why he had decided to highlight it in order for society not to be under impression that this kind of issues are ignored.
The President noted that at times, people assume responsibility for unpopular - but needed by the country - decisions.
“These are the people who aim to consolidate the country and improve people’s lives. And this is the purpose of their lives and political careers,” the head of the country stated.
So, in his words, it is inappropriate to call these people a gang.
With that, Putin admitted that the country’s social sector, industry and defence industry had totally collapsed in the country. The latter had been, in the President’s words, lost by Russia.
“We’ve almost broken the country’s armed services and put it across a civil war - blood-spilling in the Caucasus. We’ve put the country on the verge of a loss of sovereignty and breakdown,” the President added.
When the plane took off, the men insulted the crew members, annoy the flight attendants and shout obscenities. One of the men began to hit the walls shouting that he had to get out. Another tried to take in a woman's knees.
