Press Release

December 24, 2009

Initiators of a referendum on Okhta-Centre to appeal St.Petersburg parliaments ban on the referendum in court. This announcement was made by Chair of St.Petersburg YABLOKO and one of organisers of the referendum Maxim Reznik at the Ekho Moskvi radio station.

This time the Legislative Assembly of St.Petersburg demonstrated absolute absence of any respect to the city dwellers saying that the legislators can not give a definition what a historical outlook of St.Petersburg is. But I am certain that shall find counter-measures against another slap on the face as regards the citizens, Reznik said.

After such a renown person as [writer] Daniil Granin supported the referendum, such a decision shows not merely a lack of respect to some impersonalized mass of people, as deputies of St.Petersburgs Legislative Assembly see the city dwellers, it is absence of respect to those whom these deputies elect honorary citizens, he stressed. According to Reznik, the YABLOKO party will spare no effort so that Okhta-Centre would not spoil the historical outlook of St.Petersburg.
