YABLOKO will dedicate its antiwar action in the centre of Moscow to Boris Nemtsov
Press release, 28.02.2015
On March 1 YABLOKO will conduct an antiwar action under the slogan “No war with Ukraine” at Tverskaya Street, Moscow.
The activists will form a chain structure from the State Duma to Moscow Mayor’s office on both sides of Tverskaya Street. The main slogans will be “War with Ukraine is the Kremlin’s shame!”, “War adventures lead to crisis”, “Russians and Ukrainians are fraternal nations”.
The action which was announced several days ago will be dedicated to Boris Nemtsov who struggled against the war in Ukraine.
“The main slogan of the Russian democratic opposition should be the stop of interference in Ukraine’s affairs and stoppage of military actions in the territory of the fraternal country. This task is entirely within the competence of the political leadership of Russia. This demand must be uncompromising, one cannot water down and dissolve this request in the long list of claims to the authorities,” noted YABLOKO Political Committee members.
The action will start at 1.00 p.m, Tverskaya Street. The activists will gather by the monument to Yuri Dolgoruky.
