FORT BREGANCON, France (Reuters) – Vladimir Putin rebuked his French counterpart on Monday, saying he did not want “yellow vest” protests spring up like in France, after Emmanuel Macron urged the Russian leader to abide by democratic principles following weeks of protests in Moscow.
Macron, who was meeting Putin at his summer residence in southern France five days before hosting summit of G7 rich nations, is keen to show Moscow it is not ostracized despite being kicked out of the G7 after its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
The article goes on to state the following:
Despite the talks focusing on international crises, Macron sought to tackle Putin on the internal Russian situation. Moscow has been rocked by weekly protests for more than a month after the authorities barred opposition candidates from running in an election for the city’s legislature in September.
“We all know about the events linked to the so-called yellow vests during which, according to our calculations, 11 people were killed and 2,500 injured,” Putin said.
“We wouldn’t want such events to take place in the Russian capital and will do all we can to ensure our domestic political situation evolved strictly in the framework of the law.”
Putin queriendo comparar la represión a las manifestaciones en Rusia con la situación de los chalecos amarillos en Francia. Macron le explica cómo se producen las manifestaciones en un estado democrático donde se respeta el derecho a manifestarse 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 🇫🇷🇫🇷 #Tituá https://t.co/YAkuLFz9YE
