Putin re­jects talks with op­po­si­tion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & world Update -

RUS­SIA’S prime min­is­ter Vladimir Putin has re­jected the pos­si­bil­ity of talks with op­po­si­tion lead­ers who drew tens of thou­sands of peo­ple to protest ral­lies across the coun­try. The prime min­is­ter told Rus­sian news agen­cies that “there’s noone to talk to” among the lead­ers. Mr Putin’s au­thor­ity was dented by a re­cent par­lia­men­tary elec­tion in which his party lost 25 per cent of seats de­spite wide­spread al­le­ga­tions of vote-rig­ging.
