The youth branch of the Yabloko party in St. Petersburg held a rally in support of the candidate for the State Duma and the city council, Mikhail Vishnevsky. The politician himself told The Insider about this.
“This is exclusively a photograph, we did not plan any other actions,” Vishnevsky said. “
According to him, the rally took place “under the watchful supervision of the police.” “They asked if we were doing any kind of action. I replied that we were only taking a photograph, and invited the employees to join us with masks, but they very delicately refused, ”Vishnevsky said.
“Laughter is the best weapon against evil, injustice and arbitrariness. This is what they are most afraid of, because for them it means that no one is afraid of them, ”the politician added.
Earlier, the St. Petersburg Election Commission dismissed Vishnevsky’s complaints about his “doubles”, also running in the elections. On election posters, the candidates changed their appearance, becoming like the real Vishnevsky.
