ST. PETERSBURG, May 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Deputies of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly sent a request to Governor Georgy Poltavchenko to clarify the details to shut down for repairs the yard on the St. Isaac Square, where local oppositionists meet.
The initiator of the request, a deputy from Yabloko faction Maxim Reznik noted that the lawmakers are interested who and when had taken the decision to repair the yard, how often the repairs is done and when the repairs was done last time. The initiators asked the governor, when the state order for repairs was placed and when it was made public. “We intend to address to the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service in case of necessity. It seems to us that this repairs has only a political underpinning to block the protest action,” he explained.
On Monday, the yard on the St. Isaac Square, where protest actions of the off-system opposition passed liked those in Moscow for two last weeks, was closed for the repairs of the paths across the lawns.
