Vyacheslav Volodinu: “Газета.Ru”
Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin has commented on Telegram messenger in Russia. The opinion he expressed in an interview “Газете.Ru”.
“If the court makes a decision, that decision must be respected. But if this decision is impossible to fulfill, or cannot fulfill, then, must adjust the decisions to make other decisions. All decisions must be based on common sense,” he added.
