Politicians tell Vestnik Kavkaza about key points of Putin's speech

The main idea of the message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly was both the idea of ​​the need to unite the citizens of Russia for economic development and growth of its power, and the international community in order to fight against the terrorist threat. This statement was made by Russian politicians in an interview with a correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza after the President's message.

The head of Dagestan Ramazan Abdullatipov noted that Russia, according to the president, should play a leading role in the fight against terrorism, as the country has serious and successful experience.

"The most important thing is that the President clearly and honestly determined Russia's position on fighting terrorism. In addition, he said that it also relates to Dagestan. We basically defeated terrorism and therefore we have great experience which we can share with the international community,'' he said.

The governor of the Moscow region, Andrey Vorobyov, pointed out the clarity and consistency of the message, which guided the actions of government officials and underlined the idea of ​​Vladimir Putin about the need for mutual efforts against the background of disturbing foreign policy agenda.

The Governor of Sevastopol, Sergey Menyailo, stressed a distinctive feature of the president's message as his inflexible position on key issues. "Everything is clear, correct, reasonable and tough. The current international situation, as well as the determined areas in terms of attitude to business and the economy in the country were clear to me." he said.

The Secretary of the General Council of United Russia, the State Duma Deputy Speaker Sergey Neverov, said that during the message Vladimir Putin pointed out safety as a priority not only for Russia, but for the whole world.

The Chairman of the Duma Committee for International Affairs Alexey Pushkov said that the fight against terrorism, to be more precisely with Daesh, was a key priority of the President's foreign policy.

"From the point of view of foreign policy the message was focused on four aspects: there is the necessity to create a common front against terrorism, the need for the isolation of terrorism, especially Daesh, the development of integration in the Eurasian region and relations with Turkey. President Putin focused on the immediate tasks: the strategy and tactics. I believe that the main directions of the Russian policy will be joint efforts, or at least the coordination of efforts in the fight against Daesh" he said.

The Head of the Social Policy Committee of the Federation Council Valery Ryazansky made a special emphasis in his comment on the proposals of the President in the field of social security. "Taking into account the fact that I work in the Committee on Social Policy, I am particularly close to the theme of extending the possibilities for people's care primarily in expanding the means of caring for the older generation, the disabled, non-profit organizations,'' he said.

The Secretary of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and co-chairman of the Central Staff of the Popular Front Alexander Brechalov stressed that Vladimir Putin was absolutely calm and confident in his decisions. So Moscow won't yield to possible provocations.

"The message was strong, clear and systemic as usual. The President mobilized. He focused on the fact that, despite provocations by our Western partners we won't yield to hysteria. All the decisions are clearly reconciled and directed at the fight against terrorism,'' he said.

A State Duma deputy, Honored Lawyer of the Russian Federation Tatyana Moskalkova, spoke about the importance and timeliness of the anti-terrorist agenda. "This is one of the best addresses of the president, with clear and specific proposals. Today we live in a different world, and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which finished its work on November 24th consolidated all the CSTO countries for the first time in the fight against terrorism and appealed to the parliaments of the world and international organizations. These action absolutely correspond to the current goals and objectives," she concluded.
