Well well, it’s nice to see at least one politician standing up and saying something about this crap from Russia. Not like any American politicians would do that.
BERLIN (Reuters) – Two German cabinet ministers have added to criticism of Russia’s anti-“gay propaganda” law, saying President Vladimir Putin appeared to be leading his country into a “flawless dictatorship”.
The words chosen by the two members of the Free Democrats (FDP), the party of the Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, himself gay and a critic of the legislation, play on comments by former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder that Putin was a “flawless democrat”.
The criticisms indicate how once-close ties between the two countries have chilled since Angela Merkel took over from Schroeder as chancellor in 2005.
