Nationalists held their rally in Moscow on Saturday that some journalists described as a full rehearsal of Russian March scheduled for November 4. Taking part in the rally were anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny and leader of Demvybor movement Vladimir Milov.
The main slogan chanted by over 400 protesters was “Stop feeding Caucasus!” Nezavisimaya Gazeta underlined. Among those who took to streets were members of the Russian Public Movement, the Russian Civil Union, the Moscow Defence League and the Slavic Union, against whose leader Dmitry Demushkin a criminal case on incitement of national hatred and enmity was instituted earlier.
Those who gathered for the rally differed from traditional Russian March protesters, the daily noted. Several peoples in scarves and masks as well as just a few Russian imperial flags were noted. The rally’s main speaker, Alexei Navalny, said he had no intention to buy bandits from the North Caucasus new cars and finance foreign stars’ shows in Grozny. “Stop making money contributions!” and “Down with the party of swindlers and chiefs!” – voices chanted from the rostrum.
