"We need to unite and nominate one candidate from the left. Now we need to find new people to hold primaries", — quotes the opposition RBC.
Sergei Udaltsov said that he could not be elected due to legal reasons, but intends to appeal to the leaders of the Communist party Gennady Zyuganov, "Fair Russia" Sergey Mironov on the issue of nominating a single candidate from the left.
According to Udaltsov, the left front opposition task is to "make left turn". He also urged to restore the interaction with the opposition "to unite around solving problems." He believes that "Pro-Western opposition is" obviously "flirting with the West, but that doesn't mean we have to support the power".
The leader "the Left front" said that he did not intend to rally in support of Navalny: "This is not my candidate." "But to rally against corruption, I will go. We are strongly opposed to us used in his behind the scenes of some interest, collusion. We are not the whipping boys, we will carry out a clear position," he said.
Remembering the events on Bolotnaya square, Udaltsov has criticized the opposition leaders Alexei Navalny and Ilya Ponomarev for their actions on may 6, 2012. "Ilya Ponomarev ran there and spoke to break through the cordon. I don't understand why he did it. Bulk some reason told everyone to sit down at the cinema "Drummer". It was weird, why frame people under repression," — said Udaltsov.
He sayil that the actions of his colleagues in the opposition make him suspicious, not whether they acted "in conjunction with the government, which gladly blocked the passage of the Swamp". According to Udaltsov, he intends to deal with what happened on may 6.
"Navalny did not help me," — said Udaltsov in response to the question whether they had received help from Alexei Navalny in custody. Prison he called "resort "zero stars" — not beaten fed three times". According to him, in prison, people degrade and there is nothing romantic in sitting in prison, reports the Russian service Bi-bi-si.
The situation in the country, according to Udaltsov, since his arrest has not changed. "The poor get poorer, the rich get richer, nothing has changed," he said. Immediate tasks for themselves Udaltsov called the maximum enhancement and merging of the left movement, as well as restarting the "Left front". According to Udaltsov, achieved in 2011-2012 consolidation of the opposition is now destroyed. He called to fix it and re-unite the opposition of different views.
On the question of its future participation in rallies, Udaltsov said that "it would be shortsighted to cry immediately and with his sword unsheathed to call someone out on the street. Of course, outdoor activity is essential to fight for their rights and freedom, I always welcomed this activity and will be most welcome. But this activity should not be artificial" reports Newsru.com.
"I think by the fall you will hear about our actions and about our campaign," — said the leader of "Left front". In particular, at a meeting with leftist forces Udaltsov intends to raise the issue of the conduct of the common shares on 7 November, the Day of the 100th anniversary of the revolution. "Even in this day to abandon some squabbles, infighting and a powerful single share in the day of the century revolution," — shared his plans for the opposition.
Answering questions of journalists, Udaltsov was supported by the decision of residents of Crimea to be with Russia, and fought in the Donbass "in their language" called heroes and brothers. However, he says that he had not changed his views and remains in firm opposition to the current government. "Our President is not willing or able to put in place presumptuous and snickering elite," — said Udaltsov.
TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, the opposition called a Trojan horse, said at a press conference the coordinator of the "Left front". It is reported REN TV. "When Sobchak joined the opposition — as it was called in opposition to the Trojan horse, how much I fought to have it removed at least from public events," he remembered.
In June 2012, a month after the riots in Moscow — several Russian opposition leaders were searched in the framework of "marsh business". So, Sobchak was seized more than a million euros, 500 thousand dollars and 485 thousand rubles. In September of the same year the investigators returned the money. The suspicion that she evaded paying taxes, was not confirmed. Another opposition leader, Ilya Yashin, a refund is not received.
Sobchak, as well as Udaltsov, was in the Coordinating Council of the opposition — non-state political authority that existed from October 2012 to October 2013. The members of the Council repeatedly called his work ineffective.
It was reported that Sergei Udaltsov was released from a penal colony in Tambov region on August 8. The leader of the "Left front" and his colleague Leonid Razvozzhayev, aide to state Duma Deputy Ilya Ponomarev, in July 2014 were found guilty of organizing mass riots during the protest the "March of millions" held in Moscow on 6 may 2012, as well as attempting to organize further riots in Russia. The Moscow city court sentenced each to 4.5 years of standard regime penal colony. Razvozzhayev was released April 7, 2017. All of the "Bolotnaya case" were convicted more than 30 people.
According to investigators, with the financial support of the Georgian policy Givi Targamadze and Udaltsov, Leonid Razvozzhayev were planning riots across Russia. The basis for the criminal case went the film NTV "Anatomy of protest-2" — it contained a recording of the meeting with Targamadze. From the film implied that the opposition was to discuss the financing of the protest movement, reminiscent of Russian service Bi-bi-si.
The purpose Targamadze, according to the prosecution, was to destabilize public-political situation revenge Vladimir Putin for war with Georgia. Udaltsov also traveled to Russia to recruit supporters. May 6, 2012, the court considered that his actions had a crush on Bolotnaya square during a rally — Udaltsov sat down on the ground, calling on other participants to sit. According to the investigation, Udaltsov was planning to break through the cordon and to organize a tent camp near the Kremlin.
