KHABAROVSK, December 24 (Itar-Tass) — About 150 people, instead of 1,000 people stated by the organizers of the rally under the slogan “For Fair Elections!”, met on the Komsomolskaya Square in Khabarovsk on Saturday. The CPRF regional office agreed on the protest action beforehand.
The LDPR members, who intended to protest together with the Communists, refused from the participation in the rally at the last moment.
Standard demands and slogans were voiced from the platform, “No to the stealing of votes!”, “Churov, go away!” The resolution taken at the rally noted that the CPRF regional office supports the demands of the party to hold new free elections in December 2012 and call for the creation of the committee “For Fair Elections!”
An unauthorized flash mob was staged in Khabarovsk two weeks ago. Then the police detained 60 people, more than 40 people were fined for violations of the public order.
The Saturday rally passed calmly.
