Deputy Vladimir Lakeev chose a relatively unknown way of attracting public attention to your program. He personally (which indicates its a good party form) climbed the stairs in the Central arch at the entrance at ENEA and at half past six in the evening of August 31 and lit up flares. But that’s not all. Suddenly, the archway appeared a poster of the Deputy of the color of red cloth like a banner, waved in the wind. On the background of battle scenes of the great October revolution adorned the inscription: “October 17th close.” Passers-by looked at the banner, mouths Agape. And even nature could not stand it — exactly at the time of the appearance of poster sky frowned and livanul rain.
Meanwhile, the members of the electoral headquarters of the candidate to the state Duma, which were at the VDNKH Central alley, stretched a banner with the inscription “Down with the oligarchs!”. In essence, anything bad they do, the public order did not break, the amplifiers are not used. And yet the guards of the exhibition reacted to the unusual method of campaigning inappropriately — the police were called. As a result of Vladimir Lakeev was taken to a nearby police station. Explanations for the involvement of law enforcement services from the security personnel ENEA journalists “MK” never got to talk to the press, they simply did not want to. In addition, they asked to be removed from the exhibition area and members of the electoral headquarters of the candidate Lakeeva, and photographers who tried to zadokumentirovat what is happening. “We did not violate anything, people our like action — said “MK” one of the members of the electoral headquarters, a confidant of Vladimir Lakeev Sergey Seregin. — By law, the canvassing of voters is allowed anywhere, including at ENEA. The arch from the fact that it climbed our candidate, no injuries”.
