    Moscow, July 12, Interfax - Moscow hopes that the Saudi authorities will take measures to stabilize the situation in the country's eastern districts and will prevent new interfaith clashes there, Konstantin Dolgov, the Russian Foreign Ministry's envoy for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, said.

    According to media reports, two people were killed and another 20 were injured in clashes between police and peaceful demonstrators in Saudi Arabia's eastern Qatif province, home to many Shia, on July 9, the Russian diplomat said. Those injured include a prominent Saudi Shia religious leader, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, who was arrested by police.

    "We hope that the authorities of the kingdom will take all of the measures needed to normalize the situation in its eastern districts, prevent any confrontation there, including interfaith clashes, and guarantee the observance of generally accepted human rights, including the right to freedom of expression, peaceful demonstrations and freedom of assembly as permitted by the law," Dolgov said.

    The aforementioned events could negatively impact stability and civil accord in Saudi Arabia, he said.

    It says "hopes" not "warns". Russia, the prominent true teacher that taught and supported tyrannical regimes how to be oppressive and brutal, gives lessons to others about civility and democracy. This is called insolence beyond insolence. Those who she is talking about threw Molotove and shot guns at the policemen, they are called terrorists and deserve the punishment they got. And let Russia burn in hell.

    Yes Iran can do so and definitely doing so from long by helping ,Shiet of Bahrain, Ghatif and Houthis in Yemen in its own capacity. But i doubt that it can do so with effectiveness as Shiet are not in significant numbers in these regions unlike Syria where Sunnis massively outnumber Nuseyri/Shiet.

    LOL last i checked Indian and Russians were allies what exactly did you (India) block and as far as Saudi is concerned again training terrorist and sending them into Syria isn't really a military might plus yes all of Middle east and south Asia is a example of human rights.

    People who defend themselves and their families from getting rapped, tortured and slaughtered are called heroes and freedom fighters, while the people who spread sedition in a peaceful and prosperous society and openly work for foreign countries' agenda against their own people and nations, as well as attack policemen with fatal weapons are called terrorists and traitors. You know more than anybody else how it is to be loyal to others countries on the expense of your own country.

    Yeah? And i thought they are foreign mercenaries who are getting paid by Saudis for their terrorist attacks inside Syria. Also i thought civlians lived peacefully in Syria for years and didnt need any defence until Saudis started to send hired terrorists into Syria and pay them for killings.

    They are Syrian Army defectors, just write the word "انشقاق", on Youtube and you will find hundreds of videos that show regular army speeches about their defection from the regular army with their IDs and military uniforms. Most of those videos only show high rank defectors since soldiers with lower ranks are in mass numbers. Search for it on Youtube. This is for you and people who live away from this region, but we know it's a fact, that FSA members are defectors who refused to take part of killing their own people.

    Yes some of them are Syrian Army defectors who receive their daily salary from Saudis. Some of them just thugs and criminals who are also hired in Syria and receive daily salary. Some high profile officers are getting much more obviously. There are a lot of Saudi terrorist coordinators in Syria and Turkey who hire poor people every day and pay them for terrorist attacks. Dude, all the world already know this. Who are you gonna fool here?
