Russia’s Vladimir Putin condemns Soviet-era political repressions

Russian President Vladimir Putin has strongly denounced Soviet-era political repressions. Speaking on Monday at the opening of a memorial to the victims of purges, Putin said “political repressions have become a tragedy for our people” and dealt a blow to the nation, the consequences of which are still felt today.

Putin said “millions of people were declared enemies of the people on absurd charges, executed, mutilated and went through the suffering in prisons and labor camps.” He emphasised that there could be no justification for the repressions, adding that “our duty is not to allow oblivion.”
