MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s non-systemic opposition did not rule out large-scale protests, including open-ended rallies and strikes, on March 5 if ballot rigging cases are reported during the presidential election, the opposition leader of the Left Front Sergei Udaltsov told Itar-Tass.
This theme was high on the agenda of the roundtable meeting that brought together political scientists and human rights activists in Moscow on Monday.
“This proposal of mine to organize a protest was supported even among people with moderate views,” he said.
The leader of the non-registered party the Other Russia, Eduard Limonov, in his blog called for “a great national rally” in front of the central election commission's building on March 5.
Among short-term plans of the opposition is a new rally scheduled for February 26. However, a member of the organizing committee For Fair Elections campaign, Sergei Parkhomenko, told Itar-Tass that the committee has not taken a final decision so far.
