Protest rally leaders have united into a new organization, told Moskovskiye novosti.
A new player has broken into the market of public organizations advocating voter rights. A number of prominent figures who took part in the December rallies on Moscow’s Bolotnaya and Academician Sakharov Squares have founded the League of Voters, an organization which has pledged to be active far beyond the mere vote counting.
The League has a total of 16 founders. They are those who had been assessed as the most esteemed speakers by Internet users ahead of the December 24 rally. The list is topped by writer Boris Akunin, journalist Leonid Parfenov, and rock singer Yuri Shevchuk. Along with these three, the League founders include journalists Sergei Parkhomenko, Tatiana Lazareva, and Olga Romanova, writers Dmitry Bykov and Lyudmila Ulitskaya, bloggers Rustem Adagamov and Ilya Varlamov, leader of the Society of Blue Buckets Petr Shkumatov, political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin, and physician Yelizaveta Glinka (Doctor Liza). Support to the organization also came from former finance minister Alexei Kudrin, according to his Twitter page.
