1,200 people participated in a rally against the ruling United Russia party in Izhevsk, Udmurtia. The rally was organised by the YABLOKO party in the central square of the city.

YABLOKOТs leader Sergei Mitrokhin who specially arrived to Udmurtia to participate in the rally. In his speech he agreed with the previous speakers who stated that the United Russia party was a party of thieves. УIt [this party] steals money not only from the federal budget, but also from our citizensТ purses raising tariffs [on housing and utility services]. It steals subsoil, lands and eliminated natural resources in its own interests. Now it is going to steal our education making it paid [instead of the former gratuitous],Ф he said.

According to Mitrokhin, all these types of theft originate from stealing of votes at elections, where United Russia even does not conceal its stuffing in of fraudulent ballots or the so-called carousels [organizing commuting coaches to bring special people to put fraudulent ballots in favour of this party].

УHowever, the fault here lies on us, rather than on the United Russia party, because, it is us who allow to do all this to us and seems that we do not have self-respect as a nation,Ф Mitrokhin added.

УIn the Arab world the nations decided that could not bear this anymore and overthrew all the drones,Ф he said. УWe also do not have a choice Ц either we let them to steal everything here, or we will return our country back to us,Ф Mitrokhin stated.

Alexander Mokshanov, Chair of the Udmurtian YABLKOKO, said in his speech that the policies of United Russia virtually eliminated small businesses in the country. And Sofia Rusova, leader of the Youth YABLOKO in Udmurtia, added that young people were leaving Russia, as they could not see any prospects here. УThrow out United Russia!Ф chanted the rally.

Representatives of other political and public organisations, Patriots of Russia inclusive, also spoke at the rally.
