Dutch media tear into Wilders wearing Russian friendship pin on visit

Dutch PVV leader Geert Wilders arrived in Moscow to visit the Russian parliament. Dutch state media has denounced not his visit, but his... lapel pin.

    For the trip, Wilders wore a dual-flag friendship lapel pin with the Dutch and Russian colours.

    “I spoke at MGIMO University this morning. All Russian diplomats are trained there. The Harvard of Moscow, Kissinger once said,” Wilders tweeted, adding: “And yes – with the help of a pin – Russia’s importance for cooperation with MH17 has been emphasized.”

    Last night Dutch state media tried to stir up controversy with Wilders’ visit over the downing of flight MH17 in Ukraine, a disaster that has been blamed on Russia by globalists, despite a glaring lack of evidence. Most passengers on the ill-fated flight were Dutch citizens.

    “I know several surviving relatives; after a 20-o’clock news, I immediately met them: none of them are annoyed that @geertwilderspvv is now in Russia,” one Twitter user noted. He said it was “purely” mainstream “fakenews” to slander the popular anti-immigration politician.

    According to Wilders he had an “open discussion with students at MGIMO University about EU, NATO, as well as Islam”.

    The current policy of The Hague “is a disaster” Wilders said, consisting of “lies about Great Russia from VVD’s Halbe Zijlstra, the ill-advised expansion of NATO and the EU, and sanctions affecting the Netherlands”.

    “That must change. In our interest. Russia must also become a partner in the fight against Islam terror and mass immigration,” he tweeted.

    Wilders announced last fall in an interview with Dutch Elsevier magazine that he would like to visit Moscow to make it clear that not everyone in the Netherlands is against Russia.

    “Russia is not an enemy and we should not turn it into one,” Wilders said in the interview. He sees the country primarily as an ally in the fight against terrorism and mass immigration from Africa.

    The PVV leader recently announced that he had an official invitation from the Duma, the Russian parliament.

    In preparation for his visit, the party leader had paid a visit to the Russian ambassador in The Hague.
