MOSCOW, April 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian communists are planning to stage protest actions in all Russian regions on April 7 to contest the results of the past elections, Vladimir Kashin, the deputy chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party and the head of the Russian protest movement, told Itar-Tass.
“This will be an all-Russian action. Rallies will be held in all regions. In Moscow, the rally will take place on Pushkin Square at noon. We are inviting everybody to attend the rallies,” Kashin said.
He explained that he had had two-hour talks at the Moscow mayor’s office. They also discussed how to organize marches on May 1 and 9. Kashin said he was sure that the square would be crowded with people during a rally on Saturday.
Kashin said that demonstrators would protest against plans to deploy a transshipment point for NATO troops in Ulyanovsk.
The participants in protest rallies will adopt a base resolution that will contain the assessments of the past elections given at the recent plenum of the Russian Communist Party and questions linked to implementation of the patriotic program. The Communists will also formulate their questions to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin when he submits a report on his government’s work to the Russian State Duma on April 11. Kashin clarified that the questions would concern the development of the Russian defense industry and R&D.
