Speaking at a mass rally in Bolotnaya Square, Moscow, YABLOKO leader Sergei Mitrokhin urged democratically minded people to go to polling stations and make the elections honest, rather than ask the authorities for fair and honest elections.

"There is nothing to discuss with these authorities, they resist a dialogue, it is absolutely hopeless to ask something from the authorities, to demand something from them, it is even pointless to scold or criticize them. The only thing that makes sense is to change the government. It's time to change the power and take it into our hands," said Sergei Mitrokhin.

"We have to go where the power is formed, more precisely where it is stolen from the people. We have to go to the polling stations, and there we should seize the thieves stealing the power from the people by the hand, " YABLOKO leader noted.

He also called the opposition to unite by the next elections gubernatorial elections in the Moscow Region this fall and elections to the Moscow City Duma in September 2014.

According to Mitrokhin, a single from the opposition in the gubernatorial elections in the Moscow Region should be Gennady Gudkov [ousted from the Duma and the Just Russia party for his oppositional views].

Mitrokhin also said that a single list of candidates from the opposition should be nominated for the Moscow City Duma elections as well. "Let's see if all of us who come here, come to the polls and support the single list of candidates from the opposition, then election fraud will be impossible. Then we will throw all these thieves first from Moscow and later from all over Russia," Mitrokhin remarked.
