The eccentric President of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky spared no criticism to the Baltic countries once more, when he commented on a shocking NTV film about the Russian opposition, “Anatomy of Protest 2,” to the TV channel “Rossiya 24,” delfi.lt reported on 17 October.
According to ru.DELFI.lt, Zhirinovsky claimed that there are training camps in Georgia, Estonia, Poland and Lithuania, where Russian opposition activists are taught.
He thinks that a revolution, seeking to “destroy Russia and keep splitting the state,” is being organized in Russia.
“Now they (DELFI – leaders of Russian opposition) have close relations with Georgia, Lithuania, Estonia and our other closest neighbour countries,” claimed the politician on 6 October on the Russian television channel. “Romania, Poland, Great Britain and USA can also be included. They are taught there.”
The President of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia argued that he himself visited such training centres in Germany and France, and now he sees the same situation in Georgia and the Baltic countries.
“This is openly done in Georgia and the Baltic countries, close to the border of Russia. There exist training camps in Lithuania, and in Estonia seminars are organized. I saw them (DELFI – Russian opposition leaders) in NATO seminars,” claimed the politician. Zhirinovsky highlighted that, if earlier the USA set its hopes on Boris Nemtsov and Vladimir Ryzhkov, now “it put its trusts in Sergei Udalcov, Aleksei Navaln, Garry Kasparov and others”.
Zhirinovsky said he is “disgusted to see the preparations for the fifth Russian revolution,” and promised that, during the initial State Duma sitting on 16 October, he will request to intensify the operation of state security institutions, to ban the “Left Front” as well as many other political organizations and to initiate criminal proceedings against them.
