Really telling that westerners idolize Navalny, I guess it’s the shared values https://archive.org/details/VideoAlexeiNavalnyComparesMuslimsToCockroaches
I didn’t idolize him, I merely mentioned that him being banned from participating in russian politics and jailed is a contrapoint to you mentioning that Russia didn’t ban political parties like Ukraine did recently. Russia has been doing it for far longer and utilizing much more brutal methods to achieve its goals, such as assassinations and imprisonment.
EDIT: it wasn’t you who made that original argument but a different user, sorry for the direct call out, I misread the username.
A bunch of countries in Europe ban communist parties. Clearly banning parties is something is something that happens in “civilized” western democracies all the time.
I did mention Germany’s case as a more aberrant violation of the freedom of political association for that exact reason.
Can add Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, and a bunch of other countries there as well.
south korea too
