There were pictures of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, ex-state Department spokesman Jen Psaki, former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, as well as French fries and fried eggs.
To assign a protest on April 29 means to commit an error, said political analyst Igor Bunin. “At this time, all will disperse to their houses, he said . And it is clear that such a mistake could only make people, who do not live in Russia and are not aware of local realities”.
According to the source , this action is intended to draw attention to the activities of the “Open Russia”, but she, unlike shares of Alexei Navalny, is doomed to failure. “Navalny found the topic, the person you attack. And the action “Open Russia” the topic is very vague: against Putin. People don’t go to the meeting with clear agenda, and even against their beloved President, who is still very popular,” said Bunin.
I agree with Bunin, the political scientist Nikolai Mironov: in his view, the campaign on April 29, are designed to “revive” missing from the agenda of the party “Open Russia”. “But Khodorkovsky is just will not work. He dropped out of politics when he sat down, and no action is not correct, be it a meeting or sending letters to the President”, — he said .
