Commenting on the developing news from Russia, ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen MEP said: “It is with regret that I hear the news from our ALDE Party member party in Russia PARNAS that the chair of their youth wing Mikhail Konev was today kidnapped from the military registration and enlistment office in Moscow. His location remains unknown.
As a president of the largest youth liberal organisation in Europe, I am convinced that only young politicians with liberal thinking have the potential, the energy and the skills to provoke real change. I believe in you, I believe in change. We must act together!
