The Daily Mail – Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted that liberalism in Europe and the US has outlived its purpose, and he called the decision to allow millions of migrants into the EU a cardinal mistake as the G20 summit in Osaka began today.
. . . Putin criticized Western views on gay rights, immigration and multiculturalism which he claimed were attacking traditional family values. He added, “the liberal idea” was on its way out as the public turned its back on these issues.
He also claimed German chancellor Angela Merkel made a cardinal mistake in her 2017 decision to allow a million refugees into the country. According to Putin [they] cannot simply dictate anything to anyone.
