PUTIN PROMOTES “TRADITIONAL VALUES”:

“I think that each nation should have its own immune system that protects itself against bad ideas, against damaging ideas,” Putin said. “And to fight against that, we should not just point fingers and shout at people. But we should support our own traditional values.”

BACKGROUND:
  • Last year, while speaking at an annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Putin had stressed that his country should adhere to its own “spiritual values and historical traditions,” while steering clear of “sociocultural disturbances” in the West, The Washington Post reports.
  • Some Westerners believe “the aggressive deletion of whole pages of their own history, reverse discrimination against the majority in the interests of minorities … constitute movement toward public renewal,” Putin went on. “It’s their right, but we are asking them to steer clear of our home. We have a different viewpoint.”
