Ivan Bolshakov on the results of the “All-Russia vote” on Vladimir Putin’s constitutional amendments

Facebook post by Ivan Bolshakov, 2.07.2020

A miracle has not happened and could not happen. Certainly, the results announced by the Central Electoral Commission have nothing to do with reality. The “All-Russian voting” was reduced to an absurd post-modern show humiliating voters. Persistent campaigning calling voters to come to polling stations in the situation of COVID epidemic became a marker of cynicism and moral “nullification” of the government in the eyes of millions of Russian citizens.

Our freedom and future cannot be nullified

Statement by the Yabloko Chairman, 1.07.2020

Yabloko does not recognise Vladimir Putin’s “plebescite” on consitutional amendments and its results. Such a statment was made by Yabloko Chairman Nikolai Rybakov:

Today, on 1 July, 2020, the false and unlawful special operation Constitution 2020 will be completed ingloriously.

Its purpose and meaning is to put President Vladimir Putin beyond the limits of presidential terms, out of voting rules, out of reach of court and above the law; to consolidate in the Basic Law of Russia the lawlessness and arbitrariness that have developed in our country over the past decades.

An insult to public intelligence. Grigory Yavlinsky on the “popular vote” on Putin’s amendments to the Constitution

Grigory Yavlinsky’s web-site, 30.06.2020

Photo: a voting station.

A “popular vote” to amend the Constitution is like a rape. That is, it resembles coercing into something that you initially did not want and what should not have happened, and the longer and more persistently they persuade you, the more disgusting it becomes. Now people, even if they vote, do not understand at all why they need it, and, certainly, they feel cheating.

Chairman of the Yabloko branch in Yakutia arrested for eight days for a single picket against Putin’s amendments to the Constitution

Press Release, 27.06.2020

On June 25, police detained Anatoly Nogovitsyn, Chairman of the Yabloko branch in Yakutia, after a single picket (such pickets do not require any permissions from the authorities) against constitutional amendments allowing Vladimir Putin to remain on the post of President of Russia until 2036. The court sent the leader of the regional branch of Yabloko under arrest for eight days. According to the police (they told it informally to the family of Anatoly Nogovitsyn), the Chairman of the regional branch of Yabloko was detained so that he could not hold any protests on July 1, the final day of voting for  the “reset” of Vladimir Putin’s presidential terms.

Earlier the court in Yeysk, the Krasnodar Territory, arrested for ten days Alexander Korovainy, Yabloko’s municipal deputy of the Council of the Municipal Formation of the Yeysk District, for “disobeying the police”. Alexander was arrested after a rally against Vladimir Putin’s amendments to the Constitution. Yabloko considers the arrest of Korovainy a political revenge on the part of the leadership of Yeysk and the Krasnodar Territory and demands his immediate release.

The Yabloko party has been conducting a nation-wide campaign against the “reset” of the presidential terms of Vladimir Putin.

Press Release, 21.06.2020

If there was an alternative vote, only a quarter of Russians (25%) would support the amendments of President Vladimir Putin.

Not only the “reset” of the presidential terms

Grigory Yavlinsky’s web-site, 19.06.2020

The action of the authorities to amend the Constitution of Russia has approached the finish line.

Both in terms of content and form, the amendments proposed by Putin to the Basic Law of the country, as well as the so-called “popular vote” are, as is well known already, unlawful (see the expertise).

Opponents of this lawlessness speak mainly about the of “reset” of Putin’s terms – granting the right to extend his powers until 2036. This is absolutely correct: such an “amendment” is a mockery of law and opens the way for the almost eternal irremovability of power. However, it is important to see that people are being pushed to a non-alternative vote with one tick [for all the amendments], putting more than 200 hundred amendments [in a package to one vote] at once, which draw up an authoritarian corporate state at the level of the Constitution, serving the interests of the nomenclature and the groups around the power. That is, the present closed antisocial political system with an adventurous foreign policy course, with extremely incompetent corrupt, semi-criminal and non-independent staff at all levels, with a militaristic and police ideology and corresponding repressive mechanisms will now be enshrined in the Basic Law of Russia.

Press Release, 25.06.2020

The companies are afraid to lose the bid for the right to placement of advertising structures. This was stated by the manager of the largest aggregator of the outdoor advertising booking company All-billboards.ru (the regional branch of Yabloko disposes of the correspondence and records of telephone conversations).
