Kasparov and Limonov, refused to fly to Samara on the "March of Dissent"

May 18 2007

Leaders and activists of the opposition coalition The Other Russia has refused to participate in "March of Dissent", which will be held today in Samara. At a large gathering of journalists at the Sheremetyevo airport, Garry Kasparov, Eduard Limonov, Lev Ponomarev, and other opposition leaders refused to fly to Samara for a reason, ostensibly, the lack of identity documents.

Did not want to fly into the city on the Volga, the opposition come up with different justifications. So, a spokesman for Kasparov, Marina Litvinovich assures that at the box office selling tickets for double the places where they were supposed to fly the opposition. "I was standing on the register in Sheremetyevo-1. Those who went before us to say they are not allowed on the plane because they, like, fake tickets, they are not in the database. Now look vain Kasparov with Limonov. I think not," - According to Marina Litvinovich.

However, later the site issues pryamoprotivopolozhnuyu version. "The majority of representatives of the" Other Russia "and their accompanying journalists, traveling to Samara on the" March of Dissent "passports in the registration hall Sheremetyevo airport - writes web site of Garry Kasparov. - Sounded earlier version of double-sold tickets has not been confirmed ", - underlined in the message

Thus, the opposition leaders were not needed presence in Samara on the "March of Dissent" and the scandal of their otsutviem. In fact, instead of holding events, much easier to say that the government violates the Constitution, civil rights and freedom. For this we need only to print on a color printer, a ticket, then start resent the actions of the police.

In addition, such a simple way organizers of the rally to save on costs associated with holding the event in return "failed due to anti-government rally of many thousands," a good PR campaign.
