MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov has described as a fake the controversial documentary Anatomy of Protest-2, aired by the NTV television channel.
“The way I see it, it is the same old song and dance that we see at the elections. As soon as someone begins to be disliked, a fake is cooked up at once,” he said about the documentary.
“I have told Udaltsov a hundred times: ‘Sergei, you should be prepared. Possibly, you will go all the way, but your cronies, like Ryzhkov or Kasyanov will flee at the very first opportunity’,” Zyuganov said.
In his opinion, the Left Front leader “forgets one very simple formula of struggle – big politics starts there where there are millions involved, and not a tiny corporation that pursues its own interests.” Zyuganov urged Udaltsov not to let that “corporation” use his own courage to cover up its interests.
In part two of the documentary Anatomy of Protest the NTV channel showed last Friday the authors said they had exposed the pattern of financial support for the non-systemic opposition. The authors speculated that the funds might have been provided by the ex-president of the Bank of Moscow, Andrei Borodin. The former chief of the Georgian parliament’s defense and security committee, Givi Targamadze, was acting as a mediator. And the coordinator of the Left Front, Sergei Udaltsov, was one of those commissioned to implement the plan for fomenting the protest movement in Russia.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin has said the IC had launched preliminary inquiries into the claims made in the Anatomy of Protest documentary. A procedural decision will be made afterwards, Markin said.
Prosecutor-General Yuri Chaika instructed his subordinates to carry out their own inquiry.
“Should the probe expose any violations of the law, the prosecutor’s office will take all the necessary measures of response it should take,” Russian Prosecutor General’s Office spokeswoman Marina Gridneva said.
Udaltsov has dismissed the film as a provocation.
