"Popcorn" on Seliger

July 17 2009

12291.jpeg July 17 at the shore of Lake starts work third shift of the All-Russian Educational Forum "Seliger 2009". Among the participants who became a traditional youth camp there and people from the radical opposition structures.

Even before the Forum, its organizers said that, glad to see not only the activists of Nashi, but also members of other NGOs, as well as all those who have "their own political preferences. Little information bomb was the news of the arrival of the delegation to Seliger from the Communist Party. However, the Russian Communists have long been embedded in the vertical of power, playing the role of a locomotive whistle for the production of a pair of protest. But the presence at the youth forum of activists of radical opposition movements can really become a minor sensation.

As described one participant, "Seliger-2009" today at the camp had seen a man very much resembling the former head of the Moscow branch of the National Bolshevik Party (now banned) Roman Popkov. And he seems to have come not alone - with him were several other people in appearance and manners are very similar to the NBP.

Editorial failed to get confirmation of this information from the organizers of the Forum and the Directorate camp. On the other hand, was not followed and refutations. As the unofficial information we were able to report that the presence of former NBP is possible in principle, though it looks rather strange. "Subjects of new shifts - Artparad" (creativity) and "good technology" (volunteering), which does not tally with the specific activity of representatives of the National Bolsheviks, and let the former "- said source in the camp.

However, nothing strange in this. It seems that the informal relations between members of radical opposition groups and pro-government movements there has been a positive trend: more and more "professional revolutionaries" are disillusioned with the ideology of protest for the sake of protest "and prefer to channel their energies into more constructive direction. Too many of today's activists and leaders of the pro-Kremlin movement began their political careers in the NBP. This member of the board, "Young Guard of United Russia," Andrei Tatarinov. And a well-known among the young politician Alex Radov (however, soon after the transition from the NBP in the "Young Guard", he decided to leave and this organization, having been engaged in independent political activity). A real sensation was, and care, "Young Russia" (leader - State Duma deputy from United Russia's Maxim Mishchenko) frequenter of any and all opposition activities natsbolki Mary Koleda. However, if the Roman Popkov with their colleagues (which is virtually all of the Moscow branch of the NBP and solidarity with the National Bolsheviks from the regions) is really willing to be slightly adjusted their ideological view of the Russian state, the future of the opposition movement is in a very gloomy light.
