Among them was Alexei Navalny on Instagram said he had not been at a rally of that size since 2012, and said he was “very happy that tens of thousands of Muscovites did not remain silent, did not swallow the humiliation, but went out to protest”.RFE/RL reported that candidates seeking to run for Moscow city-council seats in September had to submit 4,500 verifiable signatures of support by July 6 to the election commission.

    It’s about time the decent citizens of Russia unite to raise their voices to oppose all the fascist & corrupt appointees of the brutal Dictator Putin & his corrupt Russian oligarchs who have drained off the wealth of their country for their own personal benefits!

    Post socialist Russia has seen an escalation of poverty; lower minimum wages & inflation increases while Putin & his oligarchs are having higher standards of living with their wealth, laundered out of Russia!

    The Russian leadership should bee promoting a new healthy opposition for the transition of power. Putin, despite his achievements will not last forever ad democracy and free elections will come to Russia no matter what; man's natural tendency is towards freedom. And if Russia does not have a healthy opposition it will crumble faster than a sand castle hit by water.
