Deputy chairman of the United Civil Party Leo Margolin said that at a time when Anatoly Lebedko was in the KGB detention center in the party, there was no emergency.
"We have been able to prevent this, but, of course, the release of Anatolia — good news, and now the party will get a second wind, we can more actively work for the common cause."
About the fate of the remaining political prisoners, Mr. Margolin stated belief:
"On the I think, that predicted by analysts and journalists, that the authorities sooner or later be forced to make some concessions, because before that pushes their economic situation — apparently it happens. This exemption Liabedzka and changing skill in charges against several other defendants just testify to this. "
