“We opposed the Stasi, StB, Securitate and other security agencies during Communism. We must stand against the show trials and convictions of Alexei Navalny. Putin’s regime is a disgrace. A manipulation. An insult to the integrity of the Russian people. It is time to stand up to Putin’s massively corrupt system. The hour has struck to get rid of him.”
