'The recent statements by Dmitry Rogozin remind me of quotes from the stories of Saltykov-Shchedrin. They are so stupid, absurd and unfounded that I simply marvel at them,' said Rodina Co-Chairman Sergey Glaziev on radio station Echo Moskvy today. He said that he 'is getting the impression that somebody else, most likely a member of the president's administration, has sat down inside Rogozin's head.' He is not being guided by healthy ideas, but an aspiration that he should not be discredited,' said Glaziev who thinks at the present time that Rogozin is being swept away by a political spectacle that has the goal to conduct the presidential elections in a manipulated regime.'
Glaziev said that his intention to run for president has brought an outcry of negative emotions from people, who consider themselves responsible for the conduct of the presidential campaign. 'Rogozin probably thinks that the presidential elections are a game where the commercial results are most important,' he said.
