ALDE-PACE concerned about pressure against liberal opposition in Russia
28.03.2015 "ALDE-PACE is concerned about the growing number of reports pointing at the abuse of justice to silence political opponents in Russia. Yesterday, the Russian liberal party Yabloko confirmed that one of their elected members in the city council of Petrozavodsk, Olga Zaletskaya, has been detained. This new case is part of a larger campaign aiming to put pressure on the opposition in the region and the country. We condemn the political use of justice and express solidarity with those in Russia who stand for democratic pluralism, separation of powers and the rule of law," said Jordi Xuclà, President of ALDE-PACE.

Murder of Boris Nemtsov : Statement by Jordi Xuclà
28.02.2015 ALDE-PACE is appalled by the ruthless assassination of a leading Russian liberal politician Boris Nemtsov. Mr Nemtsov was a committed democrat, an uncompromised critic of corruption, a charismatic leader and a long-standing partner of our group. It is a great loss for the Russian democrats and for the whole liberal family across Europe. Our sincere condolences go to Mr Nemtsov's family, friends and colleagues.
The brutal murder of a leading opposition figure next to the Kremlin walls is a sad testimony of the climate of hatred and violence threatening those who dare to speak up against the undemocratic rule and the politics of war. The Russian authorities bear full responsibility for this climate. Whoever was the perpetrator, this is clearly a political murder. The Russian authorities owe to the people a full and transparent investigation.
This is a sad day for Russia. This is a sad day for us all.
