Russian Foreign Minister Says Kremlin Is Monitoring 'Persecution' of U.S. Capitol Rioters

Source: Mediate

Ahead of a mid-June meeting in Geneva with Vladimir Putin, President Joe Biden said on Sunday he’ll bring up the issue of human rights with the Russian president. “I’ll be meeting with President Putin in a couple of weeks in Geneva,” Biden said during a speech marking Memorial Day, “Making it clear that we will not — we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights.”

On Monday, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov responded by saying Russia is prepared to discuss the matter. “Of course, we will be ready to discuss everything, including problems that exist in the United States,” said Lavrov.

Lavrov stated that the Kremlin is monitoring what he called the “persecution” of the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6 in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. He stated that Russia was interested in the “protection of opposition rights” in the U.S.

Russia’s most notable opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was jailed in January upon his return to Russia from Germany, where he had been recovering from a nerve agent attack he says was ordered by Putin. He was jailed for violating the terms of a 2014 agreement stemming from a fraud charge. As part of that agreement, Navalny is supposed to regularly check in with Russian authorities, but he failed to do so last year because he was in hospital recovering from the attack. A lawyer for Navalny noted he had been in a coma for part of that time.

It seems like Russian is happy to support Moscow Mitch and Kremlin Cruz in their efforts to undermine U.S. Democracy and question the legitimacy of the 2020 election.

3. Weak attempt except that love for Putin is very real on the right

Trump basically stepped into the “strong manly” depiction of Putin on Fox News as well as other RW media. Yes he almost surely owes Putin but Trump also knew of the serious love that’s been instilled in the right about Putin. Putin was the ultimate anti-Obama on the right.

36. The U.S. has its problems

But also has ways to make changes to alleviate the problems. If only enough people see that a problem exists, and wan to make changes.

maga traitors are chasing a shadow. If they want real oppression, go live in a country that has real oppression (which isn't race-based as it is here)

It's not based on human and civil rights and freedom, it's political, more meddling in our politics as in 2016 and 2020 elections.

47. Imagine, if you will...or can...how reverently Russian officials would treat radicals breaking down

the doors of the Kremlin and invading it, with evil intent. They would be proud of the great amount of damage these radicals create, who would become instant and beloved celebrities. Eventually, they would be encouraged to retire, each to their own lovely dacha on the Black Sea with a very generous pension.

Russia, especially the Russia under Putin, is the very model of generosity and benevolence.
