Igor Lebedev: "Other Russia" will collapse before the election "

May 25 2007

Boris Berezovsky, known for his outrageous statements, once again tries to intrigue his person the Russian public. At this time, in an interview with National Journal , "he said of his attitude toward the domestic opposition and said someone will support the upcoming presidential election.

Recall the radical coalition "Other Russia" riven by conflict related to the upcoming presidential campaign. In contrast, expressing the wish to become the single candidate from the opposition to Mikhail Kasyanov expressed his intention to run for Gerashchenko. It is curious that Kasyanov ally of ex-chess player Garry Kasparov, who supports a fellow for the Coalition and the stranger, the protege of Yukos Gerashchenko. As the site says " The electorate-Info ", a split in the opposition provoked by various foreign groups trying to influence the situation in Russia.

In his interview, Berezovsky actually confirms this version. As stated by the ex-oligarch in the head "Other Russia", he became disillusioned and do not intend to fund them: "I think it is bad to give money, because what happens is still a very limited scale. Everything happens naturally, but not effectively. " On the other hand BAB plans to finance those who understand the need for "forceful seizure of power" in the country and will support Viktor Gerashchenko: "By the way, the declaration of Viktor Gerashchenko (with whom I, unfortunately, the last time talked for a long time) about his decision to run for Russian president confirms my thought that even among senior officials matured understanding of the need of regime change. "

We were asked to comment on this interview with Boris Berezovsky, the head of the LDPR faction in the Duma, Igor Lebedev:

- What they will receive funding from different sources, each of whom wants to have a dominant position in the "Other Russia" and, of course, that these contradictions may be due to the fact that funding sources can not agree among themselves. And they are simply a tool in the hands of those who pay, puppets.

Quite clear that he has some influence, including financial, to the fact that all these actions take place. Difficult to clearly answer why he was disappointed in them. Maybe he saw that the funds allocated to them a broad Russian soul is spending is not always on purpose, that it provides. Still, he should understand this. Maybe he saw that in Russia there is a strong presidential power, strong internal affairs bodies and some marches have Maidan is not done, it is not Ukraine. Therefore, in this way he can not do anything. I think he probably will seek all possible ways to influence and excitements of the situation, especially ahead of parliamentary and presidential elections. Will search until they calm down or until you calm the police a lawful manner.

This is the "bickering" within their political public associations, their own business, let them understand, find out who and what. I can only say: none of the candidates they put forward, whether it's somebody one common to all these movements, or more, none of them have no chance of any in the State Duma elections, or elections president. Our people have finally figured out what the political forces in the country, which should be represented in the Duma, which will nominate their presidential candidates.

Regardless of the controversy, the coalition even before the elections to the Duma will not survive. Disintegrate, crumble, melt, dissolve, as they wished, and even one to interfere in this situation will not happen.Because long experience shows - the power of this kind do not exist for a long time. People do not support them, but without the support of the masses of voters even in excess of a strong financial aid they will not last long.
