35,000 people took part in the march to Bolotnaya Square.
Opposition rally "For fair elections" on Bolotnaya Square ended with a performance by the famous rocker Yuri Shevchuk. He sang the songs "Oh, frost, frost!" and "Motherland". The leader of the group “DDT” finished his speech with the words: “Take care of your motherland, your mother!”. After that white balloons flew into the sky.
“Presumably, a protest fashion just appeared in Russia. But it passes, like any fashion. They shouted and dispersed, but what alternative? Who will come to the place of today's government? ”- tweeters recall this.
But it seems that many politicians take such meetings very seriously. In particular, presidential candidate Mikhail Prokhorov even led the march today. It can be understood. Very good opportunity to light up during the election campaign.
