Putin condemns 'riots and riots' over US racist protest

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday criticized racist protests in America over the issue of mob violence, in his first comment on the issue.

"This fight for natural rights, if legal rights become catastrophic and riotous, then I don't see anything good for the country," Putin said.

"We never justified it," he said.

The Russian leader insisted on supporting the fight for black Americans for equality, calling it the "long-standing problem of the United States."

"We have always been very sympathetic to Afro-Americans' fight for their natural rights in the USSR and modern Russia," he stressed.

But Putin said that "whenever - even after the crime - it takes elements of radical nationalism and terrorism, there is nothing better than this."

Putin has linked protests in the United States as a sign of "deep internal turmoil" unrest for the coronavirus pandemic, which he said has "created a light on common problems."

However, "the basic basis of American democracy allows the country to get out of these crisis events," he said.

Asked about American protests, including demonstrations and the removal of statues in Europe, Putin said it was "undoubtedly a devastating event."

He pointed out that protesters only want Afro-American doctors to treat Afro-Americans, and that this is impossible in "multi-ethnic Russia."

The interview was billed as Putin since the epidemic began, although it is not clear when it was recorded.

The president made his first public appearance at a public event in Moscow on Friday after weeks of lockouts at his country's residence.
