In 2004, the leader of the “Russian Union of Latvia” Tatyana Zhdanok consistently won elections to the European Parliament. She has no right to be elected to the Saeima of Latvia, but to the freedom-loving European legislative body – please. Despite all the derogatory labels that Riga constantly hung on her.
But the authorities did not want to put up with this anymore. They found an extraordinary way out – to change the national regulatory framework so that Zhdanok would no longer be able to run from Latvia to the European Parliament. The outgoing 13th convocation of the Seimas adopted in the final reading the amendments to the law “On Elections to the European Parliament”. And if earlier lustration restrictions concerned mainly former employees of the republican state security and the KGB of the USSR, now the nationalists, like a Jesuit, have outlined a number of bans. Thus, a person who, after January 13, 1991, remained a member of the CPSU, KPL, the International Front of Workers of the Latvian SSR, the United Council of Labor Collectives, the All-Latvian Rescue Committee, and organizations of veterans of labor and military service, will no longer be able to run for the European Parliament. In general, amendments were made to the law specifically for the leader of the “Russian Union of Latvia” in order to prevent her from running again for the European Parliament.
These are the rule-making repressions carried out in the “democratic” Baltic country. Wow, how the local Russophobic nationalists, personifying power in Latvia, were frightened by the fragile woman Tatyana Zhdanok.
