ORYOL, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— A rally in support of Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin was held in Oryol on Saturday, February 18.
Nearly 7,000 people attended the rally titled “We have things to defend!” and organised by a local youth movement.
Students, members of public, trade union and youth organisations came to rally for stability and the existing political system in Russia. They chanted “Russia. Putin. Victory!” and “We are unconquerable when we are united”.
They stressed the need to “preserve and increase the potential of the country” and “to prevent new upheavals”.
“We have come to this rally today in order to say that we have things to defend. We want to say as loudly as possible that we support Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin,” youth movement leader Ivan Arkatov said.
