Zyuganov buries "Other Russia"

September 18 2006

Gennady Zyuganov, it seems, still in its infancy buried the establishment of a joint project of the left-right opposition, bred by the leaders of The Other Russia ".

Speaking at a press conference in Khabarovsk, he clearly said the offer to join this coalition, which recently made the Communists Mikhail Kasyanov: "The fate of Russia chose not understanding Kasparov and Kasyanov, and popular support for the CPRF. We stand for the consolidated actions of citizens to protect their legitimate rights and interests. A program Kasyanov we all watched in action when he headed the Putin government. And began implementation of all destructive projects - from monetization to the destruction of industry and defense industry.

After that, "Other Russia" could count perhaps only to maintain the current "status" - a marginal opposition group, hastily united in their "lines" published in the edition of the liberal politicians and left-wing radical. And if not to sink into political oblivion.

The failures began to persecute the organizers and sponsors of the "Other Russia" since its inception - the artificiality of this political project immediately caught the eye. And despite the generous financial injections to attract most powerful media resources already in its inaugural conference, held on the eve of the St. Petersburg summit of Group of Eight "," Other Russia "has lost virtually all its potential allies.

Having heard about the plans of its organizers - Kasyanov, Satarova, Kasparov, Alekseeva - call into a conference and limonovtsa anpilovtsev, leader of Yabloko, Grigory Yavlinsky flatly refused to take part in this event. From a distant Lvov, he said he did not consider it necessary to interrupt a vacation to listen to on the one hand, and Tyulkin Anpilov, on the other - to talk with the opposition, which they began after they "were driven from power filthy broom.

Equally clearly expressed and nursing home fire. While the organizers of the "Other Russia" still hoped for the emergence of SPS leader in the conference room, he said to two metropolitan editions: "Usually the democratic opposition, we have nothing to do with fascism glamorous Limonov, nor with nostalgic Stalinism Anpilov. None of what the coalition Union of Right Forces with these characters and their organizations may not be the question. "

Since "Other Russia" has lost any meaningful support for the Liberals. And in order to at least maintain their claim to the role of "collector" of "disaffected", "drugorossam" was hoping perhaps only the favor of the largest opposition party - the Communist Party. But one thing - to oppose the government on ideological unprincipled basis (if only you were "against"), as it makes the organizers of "Another Russia". It's quite another - to oppose this government for ideological reasons, that the opposition has demonstrated the system - both rights and left. Here Kasyanov and recalled that in a decent society must join for ideological reasons. And do not anyhow.
