Press Release

On Saturday, December 1, a rally in support of hundreds of deceived farmers organised by the YABLOKO party will take place in Mozhaisk, the Moscow region. YABLOKO leader Sergei Mitrokhin will participate in the action.
In 1992, 827 workers of the farms Pavlishchevo and Klementevo received documents confirming their right of collective share on land. Each of the workers received 6.64 hectares of land.

In 2001, the companies management persuaded about 600 farmers (mainly elderly people) to give their documents to the Registration Chamber allegedly for mandatory registration of their rights. According to the victims, the deputy head of the rural settlement who had the right to notarize documents forged the powers of attorney and transferred the land to the companies without any pay to the farmers. Head of the Registration Chamber was bribed and signed the deal.

In a few years the Pavlishchevo and Klementevo farms were sold to entrepreneurs from Tatarstan. But the no pay for the shares was given to the deceived shareholders.

Shareholders and YABLOKOs applications to the law enforcement did not give any results.

The rally plans to work out legal solutions for returning the shares to the farmers.

The rally will begin at 2 p.m.

Address: Mozhaisk, Komsomolskaya Square.
