Kasyanov has pondered the elimination RNDS

February 19 2009

The leader of the Russian People's Democratic Union agreed to participate in scheduled for next Saturday meeting of the new "Solidarity" movement. Supporters of former prime minister felt that their boss had parted with the idea to form his own opposition coalition.

February 21 created by Garry Kasparov's United Civil Front, the fragments of the Moscow branch of the Union of Right Forces, as well as several smaller opposition groups "Solidarity" movement holds its first rally. The main sensation of the coming event will be performance leaders RNDS and Yabloko - Mikhail Kasyanov and Sergei Mitrokhin. The first declares his entry into the kasparovskoe movement, and the second will bring a public apology to his expelled from the party Ilya Yashin.

The ratio of both of them to the "Solidarity" was well known. Even before the founding congress of a new democratic coalition Mikhail Kasyanov said the unwillingness "to participate in the creation of another opposition groups, and elected at the congress of Solidarity members RNDS threatened with the exception of the slender rows kasyanovskogo movement.

Yabloko leader Sergei Mitrokhin, spoke even tougher, considering the "Solidarity" plagiarism and parody of "non-participation in the activity of which is a matter of common decency. His personal conflict with the former leader of the "Youth" Yabloko "Ilya Yashin was also the result of the last occurrence of the organizing committee for a new democratic movement.

But life is put everything in its place. When Mitrokhin, Yabloko has stopped any political activities, concentrating on the topic of sealing buildings in Moscow and providing public relations campaign of the party leader. Efforts of Mikhail Kasyanov to create their own united opposition also came to nothing lead. Moreover, Kasyanov did not even put in order its own motion, to say nothing of a political party or coalition.

However, experts believe that the effort to establish a dialogue with Solidarity, former prime minister pursues its own selfish interests. "The Mikhail Kasyanov, never get to create their own party - believes the president of the Center for Social and Political Studies" Aspect "Georgy Fedorov. - Of course, he will attempt to crush the liberal and other organizations that are somehow working in the parlance of political consultants, "the field" ... They, in turn, want of funding and a certain social status in the face of Kasyanov.

What is of interest to the "Solidarity" Mitrokhin? Rather, he had lost earlier supervised Yashin network of street agitators, guided around the same motives that Kasyanov.

One way or another, but according to the approved plan the upcoming Feb. 21 meeting on Clean Ponds, Sergei Mitrokhin, speaking after Dmitry Muratov of Novaya Gazeta. The theme of his speech marked as "they are afraid of the opposition, the government is afraid of its people." Immediately after the podium will be Mikhail Kasyanov, who lay on the Russian authorities "responsible for the crisis" and "robbing people," as well as demand from Putin to resign.

Actually, the "Solidarity" was really to bring in its meeting of representatives of various movements. Supposed to address the human rights community (and Ludmila Alekseeva Alla Gerber), movements against the increase of customs duties on foreign cars (Ivan Strukov), a former State Duma deputy Vladimir Ryzhkov, anti-fascist movement (Michael Krieger), Media (Eugenia Albats and Alexei Venediktov).
