KRASNOYARSK, December 24 (Itar-Tass) —— No more than 500 people were participating in the opposition rally “For Fair Elections!”, which the authorities authorized, in Krasnoyarsk. Members of the LDPR, the CPRF, A Just Russia, The Other Russia, as well as the opponents against the construction of a ferrous alloy plant near Krasnoyarsk gathered on the Red Square in the city.
Ordinary people made a greater part of the protesters. This was seen just as a greater part of demonstrators did not support the slogans voiced from the rostrum. A rather quiet chanting of slogans faded away in the mob.
The rally turned out to be “safe and calm,” as the organizers pledged it. The demonstrators were offered a hot tea and the promises to continue the struggle.
