The export of the so-called 'democratic' revolutions continues, as the international community fails to learn from mistakes, which have already been made, Russian President Vladimir Putin said addressing the UNGA.
He cited the example of the revolutions in the Middle East, when people wished for change, “but how did that turn out?”
He said that instead of triumph of democracy “we have violence and social disaster,” where no one cares about human rights, including the right to life.
Actions carried out without a UN mandate could destroy the system of international relations, Putin said in his address.
