Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov expanded on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s comments regarding the ‘liberal idea’ during an interview with the Financial Times in June of this year. Peskov declared Putin is not against the ‘liberal idea’ but against having it imposed on the unwilling.
“Putin was not coming out against the liberal idea, Putin was against having the liberal idea imposed as the only one, without any alternatives,” Peskov told a meeting with students from the Higher School of Economics, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“The liberal idea is alive, it will live,” Peskov stressed…It is applicable in certain places, and inapplicable in others. But it is being applied in practice to a different extent and in different forms everywhere.”
Multiculturalism, for its part, is already causing discomfort for nationals of Western European countries, he added. According to Peskov, with all hospitality of Europeans to the arriving refugees, tensions cannot be avoided, and refugees’ full adjustment fails.
Peskov also reiterated problems that sexual liberalism may result in. He said that advocacy of non-traditional relationships was a threat to the humankind.
“I think this will have very serious, extremely serious consequences — birth-rate will continue to decline, the society will be ageing…This will have economic consequences, will result in an overstrain of the economy.”
In an interview with the Financial Times in June, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he believed liberalism had “outlived its purposes” and “become obsolete.” In his words, the modern liberal idea had come into contradiction with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.
