In his opinion, those who left the territory of the Russian Federation committed a betrayal towards Russia and their loved ones and in the future they will realize their mistake.
“Today, many are discussing how many people left the country. To Kazakhstan, Georgia, Mongolia, other states. In their homeland, which they abandoned, they still have parents, grandparents, relatives. Their act is a betrayal of the country. In the future, many will regret this. The realization of the mistake upon returning to Russia will definitely come, but it will be too late”, - Volodin said in a message on his Telegram channel.
He added that those who arrived in the country after the start of the special operation are much more important. In particular, the Chairman of the State Duma noted the residents of the DPR, LPR, territories of Zaporozhye and Kherson regions controlled by Russian troops, whose reunification with Russia was announced following the results of referendums. According to Volodin, we are talking about 8 million people.
“We need to talk about these people, help, create conditions for life. They will not run away in difficult moments for the country, they will not betray, but will be with Russia”, - the speaker summed up.
