A red thread through the whole speech Udaltsov was the idea of “left turn”: in his opinion, Russia and the entire world, destroying “the ideology of rampant consumerism and hoarding”, in our country, burdened by the actions of the “parasites” — of the President’s friends and their friends.
In Russia, however, according to the opposition, as the left forces and the opposition in General is disorganized: it is, I am sure it happened due to the actions of the authorities, and because of the actions of individual leaders of the protest. Later Udaltsov called their claim to a number of politicians promising to “ask” with some of them. Alexei Navalny, Ilya Ponomareva and Xenia Sobchak (“the Trojan horse of the opposition,” as he described her opposition), he recalled the action at the rally on may 6, 2012: according to him, Ponomarev called to break through the cordon, Bulk offered without negotiating with the protesters just to put them at the cinema “Drummer”, and Sobchak in social networks convinced and did not go out to protest. Udaltsov also noted that he had not seen support in the conclusion of “pseudologia opposition.” “I don’t podio to rally for Navalny,” he added, calling not to rely on left-wing activists as “cannon fodder”.
Its main task Udaltsov described now as the restarting of the “Left front” and the consolidation of the opposition, without distinction of right and left: the main criterion tactical enterprises he called decency.
In particular, the cooperation of Udaltsov intends to appeal to the leaders of the Communist party and CP, Gennady Zyuganov and Sergey Mironov with the offer to them to show “wisdom” and stand for the presidential election in 2018, a single candidate from the left forces, which should become a new young man. Udaltsov himself has stated that he has currently presidential ambitions.
He also said that he already started to feel the pressure on yourself: this morning the porch was splattered with paint.
The opposition leader touched on the issue of Ukraine, calling the fighting in the Donbas separatists “heroes” and demanding not to accept the demands of the West, the US and the IMF, in particular regarding the need to return to the Crimea.
