Hands off from Sergei Udaltsov!

Searches in the apartments of Sergei Udaltsov and his parents deepen the political crisis in the country and reinforce the split between the state and the society.

The campaign of reprisals against Sergei Udaltsov and other opposition activists resembles as of its scenario Stalin's trials against "enemies of the people". Starting with a public denunciation as a very questionable film "Anatomy of a Protest-2" [depicting opposition activists as spies or bought up puppets] further under the screams of lickspittles and denunciators from the United Russia party this campaign has transferred into the phase of direct reprisals with the prospects of many years of camp life [for Udaltsov].

Searches in the apartment of a political opponent to the government in view of his political activities represents a repressive act of political revenge.

Not sharing Sergei Udaltsovs political views, I think it unacceptable to use such methods for "neutralisation" against any representative of the political opposition.

The YABLOKO party demands to immediately stop this openly ordered campaign by the investigators against Sergei Udaltsov, Nicholai Kavkazsky and other people arrested in accordance with the so-called "Bolotnaya Square protesters case."

The state carrying out such actions abolishes the democratic basis of its legitimacy and declares itself a police and repressive state.

The state implementing such action rejects the legitimacy of the democratic base and declares himself a policeman, repressive, provoking a social violent response towards such a state.

Further spinning of the spiral of illegitimate violence in the relationships between the state and the society, Vladimir Putin's regime is digging its grave with its own hands, just like a hundred years ago the regime of [Tzar] Nicholas II did the same [in Russia].

The outrage generated by such reprisals sooner or later turns out to be stronger than fear which the authorities are counting on unleashing the reprisals.

Hands off from Sergei Udaltsov and the prisoners of the Bolotnaya Square protesters case!
