Responding to comments from Pussy Riot's Maria Alyokhina condemning western politicians who engage with RT, Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"When Alex Salmond started his show I challenged him to feature courageous dissidents like Pussy Riot, who stand up to the Putin regime. Sadly he shirked the challenge.

"With each passing day, pressure mounts on the former FM to end his grubby relationship with Kremlin backed RT and yet he stays. Alex Salmond was once a formidable politician who commanded respect beyond our shores. His legacy is evaporating. He should end his relationship with RT now."
