MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - Mikhail Prokhorov, the leader of the Civil Platform party, will on Tuesday transfer 1.5 million rubles to the movement “For Human Rights” to enable it to pay the annual office rent, Stanislav Kucher, a member of the party’s Federal Civil Committee, told Itar-Tass.
According to him, Prokhorov met the movement’s leader Lev Ponomarev.
"Prokhorov will transfer 1.5 million rubles from his personal account to the account of the movement ‘For Human Rights’,” Kucher said. He clarified that the money was meant for paying the annual office rent of approximately one million two hundred thousand rubles. Kucher said that the remaining 300,000 rubles would be spent on covering various expenses.
On the night to June 22, the Moscow authorities ordered the eviction of the movement “For Human Rights” from an office in the center of Moscow. Earlier, the press service of the Moscow Property Committee explained its actions by the fact that the non-residential premises which the human rights activists are occupying on 7, Maly Kislovsky Lane is the property of the city of Moscow. The lease contract expired on February 15, 2013.
"The human rights activists failed to meet the demand to vacate the premises. That is why the authorities carried out an operation to liberate them on June 21,” the Moscow property department explained.
Mikhail Prokhorov and Lev Ponomaryov, the leader of the movement “For Human Rights”, describe the authorities’ actions as illegal. "We have a property dispute but we have the right to continue occupying the premises until a court decision,” Ponomaryov said.
According to the Moscow interior department, employees of a private guarding company carried out the eviction.
