Putin Blames Lack Of Traditional Values For Acquittal of ‘Sexual Emergency’ Migrant

Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures as he speaks during his annual press conference in Moscow on December 18, 2014. Putin crushed Chechnya's rebellion, pushed back Russia's frontiers and restored the pride of a nation humiliated by the demise of the Soviet Union. But 15 years after he came to power …

Russian President Vladimir Putin has slammed the Austrian legal system after claiming that the infamous “sexual emergency” migrant pool rapist was to be acquitted of molesting a young boy.

The Russian president rarely comments on the internal affairs of European countries, and even less on specific court cases. However, Mr. Putin refused to stay silent this week as he slammed the Austrian justice system over a case in which the infamous “sexual emergency” migrant rapist was alleged to have been acquitted by an Austrian court who will seek a retrial on the case, reports OE24.

According to Mr. Putin, the court’s decision was the result of a “dissolution of traditional national values”. He added: “In a European country a child is raped by a migrant. The court acquitted him for two reasons: he speaks the language poorly and he did not understand that the boy, yes it was a boy, didn’t want this.”

Putin called the resulting court ruling inconceivable and said that a nation that refuses to defend its children has no future. “This is the result of the dissolution of traditional national values and a sense of guilt towards migrants,” he said.

Breitbart London reported on the attack, which occurred late last year, in which the Iraqi asylum seeker brutally raped a ten-year-old boy in a swimming pool in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

The boy was so brutally assaulted that he had to be hospitalised for his injuries and the migrant, when asked why he committed the crime, claimed it had been a “sexual emergency”. The phrase became notorious on social media as many used it to highlight the clear social problems many of the new migrants presented to European societies.

According to Austria’s chief justice, the migrant had not, in fact, been acquitted of the charges, but rather the trial was expected to be re-run on the basis that the boy now suffers post-traumatic stress disorder. This new charge could allow prosecutors to put the Iraqi behind bars for up to 15 years. 

Russian media reported that the migrant had been set free, despite him currently still being in custody and some claim that Putin’s view is based on Russian media reporting. The Russian press often express dismay at the European policy toward migrants and what they call the “promotion” of homosexual and transgender issues, calling Europe “Gayropa”.

Tensions between Russia and the West have been heating up in recent weeks as the Russians expand their Syrian operations, and U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has blamed Russia for hacking the email accounts of her campaign staff. Leaks have led to several high-profile resignations and political turmoil in her campaign.

Despite Putin claiming that he has neither interest in starting a new war nor involvement in the U.S. presidential elections, over one-third of Germans fear the possibility of a new conflict with Russia.
