MOSCOW, December 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Thousands of activists from Russian youth movements will take part in a rally in support of President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s downtown Manezh Square on Monday.
“On the Russian Constitution Day, a rally of Medvedev’s and Putin’s supporters will be held at 16:00 Moscow time in Moscow’s Manezh Square. The rally will be organized by the United Russia party and its youth arm, United Russia’s Young Guard organization,” a spokesman for the latter told Itar-Tass.
Other youth organizations, such as Nashi (Ours), Stal (Steel), Mestnye (Locals) and Young Russia also plan to join the rally. Thus, the latter two organizations plan to delegate more than 3,000 young people. “Our activists will hold banners in Russian and English, including banners reading ‘We PUT IN our votes!’, ‘We have cast our votes! We have won!’ We hope our English-language banners will bring our position home to foreign journalists,” a spokesman for Young Russia said.
