MOSCOW, August 18 (Itar-Tass) - Chairman of the A Just Russia Party Nikolai Levichev has demanded the Prosecutor’s General Office and the Interior Ministry ensure protection of the party’s members and supporters, who take part in the election campaign in Russian regions.
Levichev said this was not the first attack on the party’s members. When the election campaign began chairman of the A Just Russia branch in the Irkutsk region Sergei Posheshulin was severely injured. On August 15 candidate to the Yaroslavl Region Duma Alexander Kostyrev received severe beating.
Levichev demanded attackers be identified and punished.
The recent incident occurred in Elista at night: unknown people attacked the A Just Russia activists, who protected banners. “A man went out of a Niva car and pour colours on the banners. After he was remarked the man disappeared. Sometime later young people started beat the A Just Russia activists by using an empty bottle, a bat and a knife,” one of the party’s members said.
As a result of the incident two people have been injured and one of them is in critical condition.
The parliamentary elections in Kalmykia will be held on the single voting day, September 8.
