(Via Newsy) – Protests in Ferguson, Missouri this week presented Russia with the perfect opportunity to critique the U.S. and its local law enforcement.

“Police have used tear gas on a crowd of rioters who were throwing rocks.” 

Russian news outlets have been following the story out of Ferguson just as closely as U.S. outlets. (Video via RT)

Several writers carried a quote from a journalist at Russia 24 who described the protests like this: “Race relations, social inequality, a black ghetto — the fragile world that hardly held itself together through a belief in just a little bit of fairness, it seems, has finally collapsed.”
