Rose, the expert said on his page on Facebook. “Despite the fact that a) and b) called for a gathering and Durov (our new political “star”, as I understand it), and Navalny and Udaltsov, and other opposition activists. It is a failure. Anyway,” — emphasizes the analyst.
Navalny as a politician going through hard times, adds Maxim Grigoriev. That is why it is important again to declare itself, opposing a consistent rally on Sakharov Avenue.
For the same reason, refused to agree and a new rally may 5, although the authorities were ready to provide him a platform:
“The rhetoric of Ksenia Sobchak during the presidential elections on some issues was more radical than the position of the Bulk, so the number of his supporters voted for her. It is extremely important to again raise interest in his person, to gather people at an unauthorized rally on may 5 and force them to break the law. Obviously, it will be covered by foreign media, which support the Bulk. The rally is illegal, so it is assumed that the police will be hard on its participants. However, I do not think that Navalny will be able to achieve your goal. In my opinion, the police will carefully behave” — said the expert newspaper VIEW.
