“This is not the first case when city officials sent the opposition-minded citizens in Polinkovsky cemetery. Prior to this, in the same way to the outskirts of sent the Motherland party and the deceived summer residents. The calculation is simple: not everyone wants to go so far away, in a sparsely populated area where the locals-only a couple of hundred,” – said one of activists Andrey Polyakov.
According to him, such officials “deliberately deprive the public of the event their main a matter of reaching the largest possible number of people to information of high public importance”.
