Russian president, Vladimir Putin has trumpeted the growth of national populist movements in Europe and America, arguing, that liberalism is spent as an ideological force.
BBC reported that on the eve of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, the Russian president said the liberal idea had outlived its purpose as the public turned against immigration, open borders and multiculturalism.
The Russian President said German Chancellor Angela Merkel had made a cardinal mistake by adopting a liberal policy towards immigration from the Middle East.
He noted that liberalism presupposes that nothing needs to be done adding that the migrants can kill, plunder and rape with liberty because their rights as migrants must be protected.
Mr Putin said Russia was not homophobic, but that a Western willingness to embrace homosexuality and gender fluidity seemed excessive to him.
He also said he had the impression that liberal circles were set on using problems being experienced by the Catholic church to destroy the church.
