At a meeting on the development of the concept of public safety until 2030, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev touched upon events in the United States, noting that protests violate the rights of a large number of people.
“About how the situation can develop during a pandemic, we all know well from the media. Just look at the messages that come from the United States”, – he said.
“Moreover, it is understandable that whatever events of this kind are dictated, they pose a tremendous threat to public safety and lead to a violation of the rights of a large number of people. We need to remember this when building our own policies”, – Medvedev said.
A wave of protests and riots swept through the cities of the United States, and then in a number of countries around the world, following the death in Minneapolis at the hands of the African American police George Floyd. Videos appeared on the Internet in which the police handcuffed Floyd, knocked him down and fell on him three, one of them stepping on his neck with his knee. Floyd on the video several times says that he can’t breathe, then calms down. One policeman was charged with murder and three others with complicity in the murder.Media: In Hong Kong, police used pepper gas to disperse demonstrators
