“”Torting” 2.0: after Kasyanov attacked Bulk “

The so-called torting liked by the opponents of the opposition. Two weeks ago in a Moscow restaurant a cake in the face hit the Vice-Chairman of Parnas, former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov. Thursday was attacked another opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, “surprise” was waiting for him right in front of the office of the “Fund of struggle against corruption”. However, we can say that the attack on Navalny and the attack on Kasyanov — the same thing.

The opponents opposition was acting similar (except that in Kasyanov threw one cake, and in Bulk — two). Policy at the highest level has been hit before like “terrorism”: almost a quarter of a century ago a woman tried to beat a bouquet of flowers “iron lady” Margaret Thatcher, in 2009 the Iraqi journalist threw a Shoe at George Bush, students threw eggs at the Minister of education Andrei Fursenko, — in all these cases the representative of the society clashed with authority due to the inability to communicate with them as equals. About the motives of today’s protest can only guess.

But differences in accidents more.

Attacking Kasyanov, according to the politician, spoke in Chechen, the incident was preceded by a media conflict of the opposition and the head of Chechnya. Ramzan Kadyrov then called the opposition enemies of the people and published in Instagram video in which the Chairman of Parnassus depicted through the telescopic sight. Maybe the cause and even served as campaign activity policy.

“They were not Chechens, some unknown, they quickly disappeared”, — told “MK” the press-Secretary of the Bulk Kira Armys. Navalny himself called them “some clowns” and wrote: “the Kremlin is so strong, and Putin’s approval rating so high, that the only objection to the claims of the opposition, Putin and Medvedev see only the throwing pies”. The incident was preceded by many events, in which figured the name Navalny. The cause could be anything. Chief editor of “Daily journal” Alexander Ryklin even asked the rhetorical question: “nobody ever wrote that Navalny himself threw the cake, to keep up with Kasyanov?”

Video of attack on Kasyanov has published the Pro-Kremlin media, Navalny has responded to the attack with irony and posted a photo of himself, signing it: “Now all I want to do a selfie with me”.

The leader of the Parnassus after “tortina” filed a complaint with the police. Press Secretary of Navalny told “MK” that the decision about the statements the police have not FBC adopted. “But it is unlikely that we filed,” said she. What are the doubts of the opposition, she explained. Perhaps the fact that the Ministry of internal Affairs refused to investigate the attack on Kasyanov, saying that “the inquiry concluded that gross violations of public order committed with use of weapons or on motives of political or ideological hatred or enmity, were identified”.
