Russia: Kremlin hopes Bolivians will 'decide their own fate' following resignation of Morales

Russian Federation, Moscow
November 11, 2019 at 17:02 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russian authorities hope that the Bolivian people will “decide their own fate without the intervention of any third countries” in light of President Evo Morales' resignation, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said while speaking with journalists during a conference call in Moscow on Monday.

Peskov urged the people to remain calm and hoped that the current tense and uncertain state of affairs in the country will develop without any misconduct and violations of the law.

Bolivian President Morales resigned on Sunday following weeks on unrest in the Latin American country in the wake of the disputed October 20 presidential election. The president said he had received threats from opposition leaders and was eventually forced by the country’s military to step down.

The Organisation of American States (OAS) said it had found “clear manipulations” in the October 20 vote.

Morales had earlier said he would obey the OAS’ findings. He has been in charge of the country for almost 14 years.
