Kasyanov, Kasparov refused to be sympathetic

November 14 2008

The Russian People's Democratic Union (RNDS) will not participate in the creation of a new opposition movement Solidarity. This was during an extended meeting of the Presidium RNDS said its leader, Mikhail Kasyanov.

According to the ex-prime minister, he has no desire "to participate in the creation of another opposition groups." Guide RNDS observe certain politesse, without giving reasons for the decision and even expressed willingness to attend the Congress of "Solidarity" as a guest. "If we are invited as guests, we are ready to discuss the political situation. But we will not participate in procedural matters," - says Elena Dykun Advisor Kasyanov.

Nevertheless, it is obvious that Kasyanov did not want to have anything to do with the leader of the FMG Garry Kasparov, who developed the organizing committee of Solidarity, a storm of activity that even the direct initiator of the new movement Nikita White, sacrificed for the sake of participation in this project become chairman of the ATP was forced to announce his resignation from the Organizing Committee.

Actually, the conflict Kasyanov and Kasparov began ever since the "Other Russia", where the two opposition not to share power and money. A rivalry with Kasparov, Kasyanov during the primaries to nominate a single opposition candidate in presidential elections, accompanied by mutual accusations and falsification of election results, once again testified to the depth of the conflict. In general, Kasyanov declared its readiness to build an alliance with anyone - from the RPR Vladimir Ryzhkov, a Yabloko Sergei Mitrokhin, - but not with kasparovskoy entourage.

However, Kasyanov is not alone in my opinion. Do not see any prospects for the Solidarity and other opposition parties to the meeting. "Everybody goes to the fact that the" Solidarity "politics as such do not. Rather, its activities will be similar to the simulation of policies, even colorful, with" March of Dissent "and riot police with batons," - says the activist youth movement "Defence" Alexander Hanukaev.

Nikita White, accused Kasparov of usurping power in the "Solidarity", in his letter described exactly the same processes that occurred in the "Other Russia" and the "National Assembly". Ex-leader of the ATP was indignant that the Democrats once again plunged into the internal intrigues and spending power "to fight within the coordination group", applying the "Byzantine methods" and "routing". "I have heard that some of our colleagues are engaged in full swing by dividing the podium not yet established" Solidarity ", declaring that there should be a" controlling interest "and is the project participants, including those not of the coordination group which the governing body of the new structure "should be required." Conversely, there are figures (I am the way, on this version of them), whose participation is "not necessarily" or even "desirable", "- said by a former SPS leader, stressing that instead of trying to create a democratic coalition structure of the format "FMG +" disastrous for the project, as would "symbolize vozhdistskie ambitions of individual, albeit a very distinguished, figures. "Of course, I can throw all their forces to ensure that multiple world champion scored less votes than obscure regional human rights activist, and serve it as a lesson ..." - He said. However, the conviction Belykh, the struggle between the leaders could be "the last to still-born" Solidarity ".

it seems, understands and Mikhail Kasyanov, who had not even considered the possibility of its participation in the next Project Kasparov. RNDS recently took a part of the European Liberal Democrats and Reformers (ELDR), which will never succeed in Kasparov's United Civil Front, with all its champion's regalia.
