Participants in the "Voters' Strike" in Rostov-on-Don have warned the authorities that they would not accept the dishonest elections.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today a number of Russian cities held actions in support of "Voters' Strike", whose participants call for a boycott of the upcoming Russian presidential election.

The rally in Rostov-on-Don was addressed not only by city residents, but also activists from other cities. The speakers said that the authorities had not left them a choice, but they will fight it.
