MOSCOW, December 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Ex-finance minister Alexei Kudrin very attentively watches the process of preparation for the rally "For Honest Elections" planned for Saturday, December 24, and all events connected with it, but does not hold consultations on creation of any new liberal movement, a source close to the former vice-premier told Itar-Tass.
"He does not hold any consultations to create a democratic liberal movement and has not contacted anybody from the Right Cause party, the more so with Nadezhdin, on the issue,” the source said.
Earlier on Friday, some media reported that the Right Cause party's Moscow suburban branch headed by Boris Nadezhdin planned to announce its dissolution on Saturday to begin to form a new right party. According to Nadezhdin, he plans to do it together with Kudrin, on whom he personally relies.
