Bermet Talant (@ser_ou_parecer) Tweeted: I’m Kyrgyz. So I take Navalny’s past ethno-nationalist and xenophobic statements personally. But Amnesty’s decision is wrong, and I don’t like the cynical misapplication of western liberal standards of debate around racism and hate speech. 1/x

Maybe they felt burned by Aung San Suu Kyi?

I guess things are never as simple as we’d like, eh?
