Politician Offers to Send Russian Soccer Fans to Quell Riots in France
Deputy Speaker of the Russian State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky has offered France help to restore order in the violence-stricken country, RIA Novosti reported Wednesday. Special units of Russian football fans and Zhirinivsky’s LDPR party activists could end the riots within 48 hours, he claimed.
Zhirinovsky, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, sent his offer to the Russian ambassador in France, asking the latter to pass the telegram on to the French authorities.
“We are ready to form volunteer units of football fans and LDPR activists who have served in hot spots,” the telegram read with reference to individuals with military experience in combat zones.
“I am convinced that our initiative would restore total order and calm the rioting in 48 hours,” the telegram went on to say.
France is currently struggling with violent street riots. After the initial outbreak last month in the poor immigrant suburbs north of Paris, the violence has spread gradually across the provinces. Youths predominantly from France’s large Muslim minority have rampaged through suburban neighbourhoods for 12 nights in a row, setting fire to vehicles, businesses and public buildings and attacking police with stones and other missiles.
