NIZHNY NOVGOROD, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 8,500 people attended a rally in support of Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin in Nizhny Novgorod on Saturday, February 18.
The rally took place in People’s Unity Square by the Monument to Minin and Pozharsky and the Church of John the Baptist where Minin the merchant urged his fellow citizens 400 years ago to unite and rise and defend the country from the Polish invasion in the early 17th century.
Addressing the rally on Saturday, a student of the local pedagogical institute said that call for unity 400 years ago is still important now.
“Today, just like four centuries ago, we have come together in order to say that we stand for the unity of the country and for stability. We are the people of Russia and we will decide the fate of Russia,” she said.
People from different parts of the region came to Nizhny Novgorod. They carried slogans that read “For stability”, “For fair elections”, “For Russia’s integrity”, “For real actions and prospects”.
Students, teachers, World War II and Afghan war veterans addressed the rally organised by the Union of Afghanistan War Veterans.
