Former Russian Prime Minister Michail Kasyanov EP Livestream

139aa1009c10th of March 2015 - EP Livestream today 6pm Strasbourg time : Former Russian Prime Minister Michail Kasyanov, co-leader of RPR-PARNAS (party of assassinated Russian opposition leader, Boris Nemtsov) will meet with MEPS from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe. This exchange of views will be live streamed via http://go.alde.eu/livestream. Earlier today during a joint press conference with ALDE group leader Guy Verhofstadt, Michail Kasyanov rejected the notion that Muslim extremists are responsible for the assassination of Boris Nemtsov, stating that “Nemtsov was a defender of minority rights in Russia, including those of the Muslim community, and a fierce opponent of the war in Chechnya”. According to him, “whoever is trying to claim that Muslims killed Nemtsov are lying”. On the Ukrainian crisis, Michail Kasyanov also stressed that the European Union should stick by its principles when dealing with Putin, asking not to lift any EU sanctions.
