"After December 19 the authorities have taken such information wave, trying to show that the purpose of the opposition was to prevent the normal operation of government agencies. Like, if they wanted to protest, then there are plenty of other places that are not close to government buildings. Is the route that we proposed in the application, do not lay near some government buildings and could not create any obstacles. That which is absolutely categorically denied completely, it just shows that it is not in a destruktyvnastsi opposition, and the fact that power just absolutely do not want to allow a modicum of dissent.
