“Medvedev calls on Russians to place their fate into their own hands”

Russia’s leader is not trying to impose additional burdens on citizens by inviting them to take a more active part in the country’s political life, says Mikhail Troitsky from Moscow State University.

“Medvedev is only urging people to self-organise and fight for what they deserve,” Troitsky said while commenting on an article where the president sheared his view on Russia’s future.
