Putin is pure evil, Russian political activist Lev Ponomaryov says

If you believe Putin, then one day he will come to Bulgaria, civil and political activist Lev Ponomaryov, who lives in Paris says in an interview with the BNR.

“With Putin, there is no empathy to people at all. When circumstances allow these people to come to power, to be given unlimited power, that is when absolute evil emerges. He is willing to destroy the human race, himself. It is a good thing he has children and women, and property in other countries. Because if he was alone, he would have dropped a nuclear bomb a long time ago. If I was a religious man, I would say that Satan is now in power in Russia. People like that turn many into zombies,” says Lev Ponomaryov.

More far-reaching personal sanctions against the senior administration should be put in place if we want the war to end more quickly, and Putin to be ousted by his own entourage, Lev Ponomaryov says further, and calls for more arms to be given to Ukraine.
