The Kremlin explains Putin’s words about liberalism

Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov explained to journalists the words of the head of state Vladimir Putin about liberalism.

He stated that, in his view, Putin’s ideas are close to liberalism.

But at the same time, the president did say that when these ideas are imposed on others when other ideas begin to be considered incorrect. “The ideas of liberalism themselves are discredited and inflation.”

“As for Putin himself, the ideas of liberalism are still close to him, but he is far from considering all the others to be mistaken in their views,” Peskov said.

Earlier it was reported that Russian leader Vladimir Putin believes that in the modern world liberalism does not have the right to absolute dominance and dictatorship.

In turn, the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, responded to a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin that liberalism is out of date. He stated that he considered outdated authoritarianism and a “cult of personality.”
