Just to clarify

“Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin responded Friday to a European official’s criticism of what appeared to be several contract killings here by saying rights abuses occurred in Western Europe, too, citing the ill treatment of migrant workers.”

Really? José Manuel Barosso says, basically, “Your government should stop murdering its political opponents,” and Putin says, “Yeah, well no one's perfect, you guys aren't treating migrating workers well enough, let's call it a draw.”
