Dmitry Medvedev: “He who criticizes the homeland from outside is a traitor”

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, vice-chairman of the Security Council and leader of the ruling United Russia party, has said that moving abroad is a personal decision, but that criticizing the homeland from abroad is a betrayal.

Medvedev told a reporter of the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti.

“There is a big difference between those who have just moved abroad and those who actively disagree with the Russian authorities’ decision to conduct a special military operation abroad,” Medvedev said.

According to him, under normal circumstances, criticism of the government is quite normal, but in times of war or “special operation” that criticism is unacceptable.
