Vice-speaker of the state Duma Igor Lebedev met with the mother who was born without arms girl Vasilina. The Deputy from LDPR and Elmira Knutsen met in the lower house of Parliament, informs “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.
Lebedev brought Knutsen apologies, thanking her for her restrained reaction. “We will try to get the story over to you more favourably,” he said.
The MP also suggested the woman’s cooperation, expressing willingness to take her advice and guidance on working with persons with disabilities. In turn Knutsen gave the Deputy a list of requests from the parents of children with abnormalities.
In conclusion, Lebedev has criticized journalists who paid attention to his comment on Twitter about armless girl. “I’m sorry that the media, often chasing big news, distort the meaning. Need correctness, especially when it comes to such sensitive topics to the public,” concluded liberal Democrat.
September 11 Lebedev on Twitter commented on the video where the little girl without hands, he eats with his feet. “Why are these children allowed to be born, because it’s torture, not life,” he wrote.
After the Deputy of the state Duma Sergei Boyarsky wrote Lebedev, his position is disgusting. He explained his words, writing: “Repulsive when such suffer and not live.” The dialogue of parliamentarians has ended. Mr Lebedev later said that it was a “private correspondence, albeit in a public plane”.
