Astrakhan: seven persons support "Nadoel!" action

Today, in Astrakhan, seven activists have held an action against President Putin’s nomination for the next term in office. They expressed their protest in written appeals to President.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today the action "Nadoel!" was held in several cities of Russia; it was organized by the network movement "The Open Russia". The action was supported, in particular, by residents of Rostov-on-Don and Krasnodar.

In Astrakhan, the action was held in the "Hyde Park". "We don’t want Putin run for the fourth term; he is in power for 18 years already; I’ve never voted for him; I’m not happy with his ruling; therefore, I think Putin should not run any more, he must resign," Mikhail Doliev, the chairman of the regional branch of the PARNAS Party, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Yaroslav Savin, another participant of the action, is of the same opinion. "I don’t want him [Putin] to nominate his candidacy again; and I protest against it. We wrote about it in our appeals," he told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Yuri Kosov, an activist, said that he advocates people’s chances to live better. "Such chances will appear only if the power is replaceable," he said.
