9th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Thursday the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was not democratic.

"Why was Mr. Assange hidden in jail? Is that democracy? As we say in the village: the pot is calling the kettle black," Putin told reporters in response to a question about US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks that gave Russia an undemocratic image.
