Head of the St.P etersburg branch of YABLOKO: "YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky" initiative will only help the leader of the party

The YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky initiative will only help to the leader of the party

St. Petersburg, August 4, 2003. The "YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky" initiative will only help the leader of the party Grigory Yavlinsky, said the Chairman of the St. Petersburg branch of YABLOKO Maxim Reznik. In an interview with Rosbalt correspondent, he noted that this campaign "did not originate from St. Petersburg, as there is no such force here." According to Reznik, YABLOKO had a hard time findnmig out who Igor Morozov is and it is difficult to say how he could study the situation in the party to be able to make such actions and statements." It should be noted here that deputy of the municipal council No 65 of Primorsky Area of St. Petersburg Igor Morozov heads the recently founded movement. According to Reznik, it is clear that Morozov is "simply a puppet."

The leader of St. Petersburg YABLOKO also stressed that the party members reacted to the new movement as "a repulsive thing - calmly and with dignity". Reznik is certain that "our citizens are clever and will find out what is going on." However, he also noted: "it is a pity that someone will once again label St. Petersburg the 'capital of black PR', as clones of the LDPR and CPRF are likely to emerge soon." Reznik is also certain that the emergence of the movement "YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky" serves as "further proof that Grigory Yavlinsky has been for the past ten years and remains the leader and most popular politician among democrats."

According to Reznik, "we should work out who profits from this." "All the black technologies emerged again after Kokh was appointed head of the SPS election campaign headquarters, but 'YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky' is the most innocent sin by Kokh and Chubais," noted Reznik. "This is small fry for an elephant like us." Maxim Reznik also noted that the party "will explain to the population who devised this and will treat this calmly."

The St. Petersburg branch of the SPS could not have generated the idea 'YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky', as relations between the St. Petersburg branches of YABLOKO and SPS had been built recently on the joint resolution of many problems, stated Reznik. "I hope that our relations will not be damaged considerably during the State Duma election campaign in St. Petersburg," stressed the head of St. Petersburg YABLOKO.

The press-conference announcing the creation of the interregional public movement 'YABLOKO Without Yavlinsky' took place at the Moscow Centre Intermediacom on July 31, 2003.
