While Putin’s Russia wages war in Ukraine and Syria killing thousands of people, Swiss MP’s preparea red carpet for this Russian warmonger belonging to the very inner circle of Putin’s – to discuss economic and political cooperation opportunities.

Originally this visit was planned in 2013 by Council of States MP Filippo Lombardi (CVP/Ticino), well known as notorious friend of Putin’s Russia and promoter of settling rich Russians in Ticino1) Why the current president of the Council of States, Raphaël Comte (FDP/Neuchatel), agreed to host Ms. Matvienko, is a mystery. Definitely hard to comprehend is the very strong support by Hans-Peter Portmann (FDP/Zurich), member of the National Council and deputy Division Head of LGT Bank Switzerland, responsible for servicing wealthy Private Bank Customers “market Switzerland” 2) Are these MP’s actively pursuing to curry favor with Ms. Matvienko, who is on the EU, US and SECO sanctions lists, and to lay the base for discussions of a Free Trade Agreement with Russia? How can these MP’s seek actively a more intense trade relationship with high ranking members of an authoritarian and corrupt regime, on whose hands there is more blood every day?It is already hard to swallow that Swiss officials refuse to name Russia as the aggressor in Ukraine and Syria – and all that due to a wrongly interpreted «neutrality».

 

No business as usual with Putin’s Russia until the last Russian soldier has left Ukraine (including Crimea)!
