"Open Russia" is openly anti-Russian activities both in our country and abroad. This organization feels at ease in Russia, and its leaders directly cooperate with the US authorities. Thus, the son of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Pavel, heads the Institute of Modern Russia (associated with the movement "Open Russia", sponsored by Khodorkovsky). One of the Institute’s largest projects is the online magazine The Interpreter, dedicated to “analyzing Russian policy, Russian-Ukrainian relations, countering Kremlin propaganda, and popularizing the Russian opposition.” The Interpreter materials are actively published on the website of Radio Free Europe, which belongs to the US government agency BBG (specializing in propaganda, including anti-Russian), and in January 2016 signed an agreement between the organizations, and now Radio Liberty ".
More than 14, thousands of people supported the idea of recognizing Open Russia, which positions itself as a social political network movement, an undesirable organization in the territory of the Russian Federation. And it is likely that the necessary petition will gather 15 thousand votes.
Here is a small sample of the numerous comments on the petition published on www.change.org.
Olga Orlova (Moscow)
Fifth column. All will not calm down. So, we must ask to calm down the power decision.
Sergey Revutsky (Sevastopol)
I do not want people to come to power who openly hate my country Russia and who, like M. Kasyanov, are calling for the return of the Crimea and my city to Sevastopol to Ukraine!
Michael Gevorkyan (Moscow)
I subscribe, because not the opposition, but the real Russophobes. Their activities are aimed at worsening the state of our country.
Denis Ilyin (Ekaterinburg)
Another NGO, inspired by the State Department of the biased liberastov. We had enough example with the collapse of the Union, it is enough to attack the old rake.
It is worth recalling that Open Russia does not even hide the fact that it is being financed by the funds of ex-prisoner Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who today is hiding from the investigation into the case of the murder of the mayor of Nefteyugansk, outside the Russian Federation. Some time ago, Mr. Khodorkovsky, who clearly wants to be closer to the main political chair of Russia (under the new scenario), declared his readiness to finance “the right” (from his point of view) candidates, and, judging by the notes of “Open Russia”, funding simultaneously with the selection of candidates is very active.
Considering that a country should know “its heroes”, it’s worth, as it’s called, to list the candidates (“candidates”) that “Open Russia” and, therefore, personally Mikhail Khodorkovsky, support. The list also includes the “main thoughts” of the candidates.
Natalya Gryaznevich (26 years, lawyer). The co-chairman of the Petersburg branch of PARNAS (it is just interesting, in PARNAS, by chance, got not in the same way as ... another ally of the party boss? - author's note). Political views: "Liberal."
I am going to the elections to the State Duma in order to build the Russia in which we all want to live — open and prosperous! Russia, in which there will be opportunities for the implementation of each. Russia, which will be guaranteed those rights that are enshrined in our Constitution: the right to life, security and freedom of speech. Russia should not live by the law of the strong, but by the law of the Constitution.
And what, Natasha in her 26 years in Russia does not give the right to life? Or for some reason she is unsafe in our country ... Millions of Russians live quietly, work, take rest, give birth to children, enjoy life, and Natasha, the candidate, you understand, is restless ... Or does Mr. Khodorkovsky have everything "Virus".
By the way ... Total 26 years, and already so pulls in the State Duma! And why would Natasha not start building a flourishing Russia in the role, for example, of a school teacher (education seems to be appropriate) - at least give 10-15 years of pedagogy, and only then think about what can be useful in lawmaking. But after all, his statement about the acute attack of the desire to be in the Duma already in 26 years, forgive, "burns" its main sponsor. Most adequate people understand perfectly well that such a young “candidate” in itself is an ordinary political dummy, and therefore (if such a thing happens - and she passes to the State Duma), she will speak with the MBH talking head - no more.
Nikolay Artemenko (26 years, St. Petersburg, deputy assistant). Political views: “Liberal; supporter of parliamentary republic ".
I go to the polls, because Petersburg needs changes, new ideas and new solutions to old problems. I do not want to trust our city to people for whom the place of the deputy is more important than solving the tasks that they could solve. I go with Open Russia, because our views coincide.
26 years ... In principle, everything is also clear ... One remark: a young man is a truly professional candidate almost from the cradle. In 20 years already advanced in the candidate status - however, in the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg and from the Yabloko party. How is it in the Internet meme: "In 20 years, Karl!" What a study, what work, what service in the army ... - CANDIDATE and the point!
Olga Zhakova (32, lawyer). Political views: "A supporter of a strong legal democratic state."
Well, here at least not 26 ... And the rest ...
I believe that Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Open Russia are the only real, sensible opposition, and I am confident that together we will win.
No, well, it is clear that Mikhail Borisovich gives a money to promote a graduate of the faculty of service and advertising of Irkutsk State University, but in the very first sentence of “status” it is too much to mention the benefactor’s name - even by advertising standards. Or you can’t spoil Michal Borisych - the personality cult is in “all its glory” ...
Photos of the three listed "candidates" (from left to right: Zhakova, Gryaznevich, Artyomenko):
And there are 23-year-old candidates. Apparently, the relatively successful passing of the unified state examination today by individuals causes a very serious self-confidence ...
And suddenly: there are candidates — the current regional deputies from United Russia (for example, Ruzil Mingalimov, 31-year-old from Tatarstan). This, by the way, is about who the “United Russia” is filled with today, and about how much the system of party values is there ...
Mikhail Borisovich, and you excel yourself. Apparently, in the understanding of your Open Russia, the candidacy is already a type of activity, and therefore it is possible to use even those who do not know the real work from the word “in general” as candidates for parliamentary seats. In principle, the technology is clear: a person who does not know what labor and honest earnings are from a “box” is unlikely to bite on Kasyanov-Khodorkov promises of “party successes”, and therefore the contingent is chosen appropriately in the sense that will not ask. A sort of dummies of liberalism - most often with clean employment records and an indispensable burden to show oneself from a shop window ...
