Russia Refuses Afghan 'Refugees'

The governments of the USA, Britain and other Western nations with a liberal death-wish are falling over themselves to take tens of thousands (and counting) of Afghan 'refugees'. Russia, however, has announced a very different approach - and the reason should give all the others pause for thought. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday his country won’t accept Afghan refugees because he doesn’t want to deal with “militants” masquerading as asylum-seekers.

The Russian strongman slammed Western nations for placing Afghan refugees in countries even near his border while their US and European visas are being processed.

“Does that mean that they can be sent without visas to those countries, to our neighbors, while they themselves don’t want to take them without visas?” Putin raged to the Russian TASS news agency. “Why is there such a humiliating approach to solving the problem?’

He said he will not accept “militants showing up here under cover of refugees.”

The Russians, of course, have bitter experience of Afghan violence and Islamist terrorism. They know the score, and Putin has - as is so often the case - done the right thing by his nation and his people.
