Borovoy: the West needs a serious action and not demonstrative symbolic steps as the expulsion of Russian diplomats

If you really want to influence the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Western countries should not be limited to the expulsion of Russian diplomats, said in comments to the edition «GORDON» Russian opposition leader and political analyst Konstantin Borovoy.

«Expulsion of Russian diplomats – a symbolic step in the Western countries, which they demonstrated their unity. Nevertheless, this is only a symbolic step. Over time, the diplomats returned, the number of places is not reduced. Putin symbolic steps does not understand and ignores them. Therefore, the West need serious action, not demonstrative symbolic steps as the expulsion of Russian diplomats» – said Borovoy.

In his opinion, issuing warrants for the arrest of the Russian property of dubious origin, the UK has started a movement «in the right direction.»

«The UK’s decision to issue warrants for the arrest of the Russian property – this is a step in the right direction. Here we are talking about officials from Russia, which in the UK dealing with money laundering. London is trying to stop this process. It’s billions of funds. But I’m afraid against Putin’s inner circle, the British will be delicate. It is interesting that the Kremlin is trying to protect the Russian officials who may be affected by the actions of Britain. Essentially, the fight against money laundering in the West is a struggle in the way of state governance in Russia», – said Borovoy.

After London suspected the Kremlin attempted a 66-year-old former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter Julia, more than 20 countries were declared persona non grata of diplomats of the Russian Federation.

The Federation Council promised a response to the expulsion of Russian diplomats will be symmetrical.
