Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday warned against the dangers of totalitarianism and despotism but said Russia must not adopt a similar political system to its neighbour Ukraine.
“We shouldn’t allow the ‘Ukraine-ization’ of political life in Russia but we should on no account slide in the other direction, towards totalitarianism and despotism,” Putin said.
Ukraine last week held the first round of presidential elections that were hailed by international observers as “high quality” and offering a wide choice of candidates. But the country also suffers from chronic political instability.
Speaking at a major meeting chaired by President Dmitry Medvedev and attended by Russia’s political elite, Putin called for cautious reform of the Russian political system.
