Spicer slammed the Russian government’s crackdown on protesters in the streets on Monday.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer offered a strong statement condemning the Russian government’s crackdown on anti-Putin protesters on Monday.
“The United States strongly condemns the detention of hundreds of peaceful protesters throughout Russia that happened on June 12,” Spicer said. “Detaining peaceful protesters, human rights observers, and journalists is an affront to core democratic values.”
Spicer called on the Russian government to release the detained protesters.
“The Russian people, like people everywhere, deserve a government that supports an open marketplace of ideas, transparent and accountable governance, equal treatment under the law, and the ability to exercise their rights without fear of retribution.”
