Members of the Tver branch of YABLOKO - United Democrats do not rule out the political causes of the case an attack against a principled lawyer attorney and increasingly popular politician.

An open attack against a registered candidate is a challenge to the city and its residents.

We demand a thoroughly investigation of this case by the law enforcement.

The goal of the crime was clearly intimidation. But they will not scare us!
