Leonid Slutsky: “The resignation of Nil Ushakov may well have a political background”


Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs:

“The resignation of Nil Ushakov may well have a political background. He is a very uncomfortable politician for the Latvian authorities. Against the backdrop of an aggressive anti-Russian line, Ushakov continued and continues to defend the rights of the Russian-speaking population, which obviously does not fit into the general Russophobic trends of the local elite.

But, I am sure that, no matter how the situation develops, Neil Ushakov will not complete his path in politics. He will continue to fight for the truth.”
