On November 19, a rally of public non-governmental organisation Social Justice (supporting Vladimir Putin) took place in front of the in front the Krasnodar office of the YABLOKO party.
The organizers of the rally tried to make the Krasnodar YABLOKO "publicly apologize for the insulting leaflets against the elected President".

This is already the second action against YABLOKO organised by Krasnodar supporters of Vladimir Putin. The first action in a form of a pocket was held in front of the office of the Krasnodar branch of YABLOKO on November 1. The pro-Putin rally gathered about 50 participants who carried slogans "The Krasnodar Territory supports Putin" and "Social justice." The overwhelming majority of the participants were elderly women. Several supervisors registered those who came to the rally so that to give them remuneration for participation in the rally.

As during the picket of November 1, the majority of the participants neither understood why they had gathered by YABLOKOs office, nor could explain the goals and objectives of the action. They confessed that they had been brought here or sent here. The action was guarded by police. The organizers tried o obstruct photo or video recording of the rally.

YABLOKO activists, in turn, spread among the protesters different materials about Putin, including the booklet "The Black Sea Palaces and Their Hosts" and "Life of the Galley Slave" and other booklets (anti-government from the point of the view of the organizers of the rally). The booklets went like hotcakes, despite of active counteraction of the organizers who tried to snatch the booklets from the hands of their own activists. But the participants of the pro-Putin rally turned out to be interested in alternative information about Putin and carried away about 100 "anti-governments" booklets.

The rally ended by burning of white ribbons (a symbol of protest) in a zinc bucket and dispelling its dust.

"The activities of Social Justice are focused on the demonstration of "broad support to Vladimir Putin by the population". This organization operates in the closest contact with the authorities and is under their complete control. There is no doubt that all these pro-Putin rallies are carried out at their request," said Andrei Rudomakha, Chair of the Krasnodar regional branch of the YABLOKO party.
