“Naturally, non-systemic and policy differ sharply from each other, including on moral – ethical qualities”, – Pamfilova said in an interview that publishes the official website of the Ombudsman. Therefore, in her opinion, “it is not necessary to row all the non-system opposition with the same brush”.

In her opinion, “there is among them an absolute and disinterested “focused” on their ideas, and not all of them dreaming about “subversive state Department cookies”. “And if opposition campaigns and protests of a peaceful nature, not going beyond the legal field, the practice of illegal administrative pressure” – said the Commissioner for human rights. “Even when the vast majority of our citizens are non-systemic opposition is a cause of deep hostility and active rejection, then that is no reason to expose her to the obstruction and to arrange a witch hunt,” added the Ombudsman.

However, she indicated that, “if someone is subversive, then it should appropriately respond to law enforcement and the judicial system”.

Pamfilova regrets that in Russia, “unfortunately, the level of political culture and debate leaves much to be desired”. However, according to her, it is now “more necessary than ever for civil, interethnic and interconfessional consent”.
