Russian president Vladimir Putin has openly declared himself on the side of those who oppose the nonwhite “refugee”-invasion of Europe, saying that Russia “likes” the position of “defend[ing] European identity.”
Putin’s remarks, made during a joint press conference with visiting Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Moscow yesterday, are the clearest indication yet that a new eastern European-based bloc is forming up against western European liberalism and the racial suicide of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her allies.
During the meeting the two leaders discussed a range of issues including the invasion of the European Union by millions of bogus refugees, and the role of terrorism in causing the invasion.
“The reason for the current refugee issue is the destabilization of states in entire world regions — Northern Africa, Afghanistan and other countries. In order to solve the refugee issue the prime cause should be eliminated. The countries’ statehood, economy and social sphere must be restored so that people can live in their own country or return there,” Putin said.
He added that he shared Orban’s views on the causes of the refugee crisis, saying that their opinions “largely coincide” and that the “position of Hungary and its prime minister, which is to defend European identity, the identity of one’s country and people, is likable to us.”
The EU already has formal sanctions against Russia since July 2014, when “restrictive measures” were imposed in response to the ongoing conflict in the Ukraine, which the EU blames on Russia.
According to those sanctions, EU nationals and companies are forbidden from making major financial investments in Russian state banks, energy or defense companies, or from selling or buying arms or items which could have military applications. In addition, it is illegal to sell equipment and technology used for certain types of oil exploration and production to Russia.
Although the Hungarian government initially supported the EU sanctions against Russia, Orban said yesterday at the press conference that the time to extend the sanctions had passed, and that more EU countries are starting to oppose the restrictions on Moscow.
“I believe that this period is behind us… I think that in 2016, by mid-year, it will be impossible for the European Union to automatically extend the sanctions… All the countries of the EU are beginning to understand that it is necessary to cooperate. I think there is a chance that we will work together,” Orban said.
