Once the number of Pro-government oriented bloggers and journalists at the same time put forward the same version of the origin is found at the interior Ministry Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko amount in the currency equivalent of 9 billion.
Earlier version — that the money was a “common Fund” law enforcement agencies or belonged to “Nota-Bank” — they considered it invalid, instead assuming that the funds are a “black cash register” of the opposition, which was to be spent on organization of “Russian Maidan” after the election.
One of the first such version was put forward columnist Maxim Sokolov. In Facebook he asked, “how reasonable is the assumption that the Colonel of the interior Ministry Zakharchenko held liberation of the common Fund?”. In the comments on the question “the common Fund of the opposition?” The falcons answered “Yes”.
Soon an identical version sold on other journalists and bloggers.
In particular, the correspondent of “Komsomolskaya Pravda” Dmitry Steshin said in a tweet that “it is believed that 9 billion of the Colonel’s “black cash” the Russian Maidan”. As evidence of the “opinions” he brought the argument that “dollars — in original packaging”.

Dispersed across the Network and writing in LJ blogger Dmitry Mylnikova, made the conclusion that this amount of money in the currency may need only to “to give”, they were imported into Russia from abroad, and “through diplomatic channels”. Specific evidence of your version of one of the journalists and bloggers does not.
Earlier, on 4 September, the Pro-Kremlin analyst Sergei Markov has stated that after the election the opposition United nationalists, “most of the Gentiles”, and Ukrainian regiment “Azov” is ready to organize a “power shock troops”, claiming massive fraud in the elections.
Note that the opposition-minded journalists, in particular, Ivan Davydov of The New Times and Alexey Kovalev from “Lapusneanu” in turn, wrote what I consider the simultaneous statement of the same position is not “opinion” or “sudden insight”, and launched a “temnyk”.
