Pravda means ‘truth’ in Russian. But I’m afraid you won’t find much in the issue of May 26th.
I did a press conference in Moscow. Six TV channels. Newspapers, magazine, the lot. I’m just sorry that all people know about this is one biased report from a most prejudiced source.
I did not say that the ‘USA is a fascist state.’ I said that Bush had consistently violated the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But America is a constitutional democracy and I had great faith in this document. Bush will not be reelected. And the inherent checks and balances in the US system would cancel out the violations. I am a great believer in the strength of American democracy. In the long run.
Not quite the way Pravda quoted me…
More in sorrow than in anger.
