Dmitry Gudkov and Maxim Katz parted like ships at sea

Recently established and successfully acted in the municipal elections of tandem Dmitry Gudkov and Maxim Katz broke up. And if the latter, sooner or later, to quarrel with almost all his associates, to bring Gudkov, it was necessary to try very much. Both remain to balance on one political platform, the party “Yabloko”.

Max Katz from the very beginning entered opposition politics as an odious figure. He first professionally played poker and engaged in backing (financial support for promising players), and, as I was assured by the experts actually had in this area a success.

Then became interested in urban studies, has become known as the blogger, and then joined the ranks of the opposition. It was first observed speakers at a rally against the results of the Duma elections of 2012, and then he went to the front ranks of opposition figures and became a member of the protest coordination Council. While Katz had a fight with Alexei Navalny, although before the conflict was part of his staff on elections of the mayor of Moscow. According to the official version — for criticizing his projects.

In addition, Katz’s long tense relations with the head of the Moscow Yabloko Sergei Mitrokhin. For trying “raider capture of the Moscow branch of” his earlier expelled from the party.

Now a bargaining chip in the conflict with Mitrokhin was Dmitry Gudkov, who Katz at that time successfully collaborated. The former player said that Gudkov, and no Mitrokhin, should run from the party in mayors of Moscow, and opaque hinted that the post of head of the Moscow branch it also would not hurt to remove, but to put it Katz. Gudkov himself his intention to apply for the post of mayor did not hide, but, first, was not going to go into conflict with Mitrokhin, and secondly, have not received any guarantee from the “Apple” that they put forward and considered the option of self-promotion.

Gudkov tried to smooth the conflict situation and continued to cooperate with Maxim Katz, expected that he will head his campaign headquarters. But suddenly became aware of the breakup.

The reason voiced by Sam Katz: in his words, hooters wanted to head his campaign regardless, will there be a nomination from the party “Yabloko” or not. Katz allegedly refused. Then the beeps began to move away and gathered his own team, began to “hentai” Katz people and General mischief.

“Since Katz, we do not work for several months. I wrote that the project “Observation” do without Maxim, but was hoping I wouldn’t have to endure the nuances of our relationship to the public’s attention, — commented on the situation Gudkov. — Including because he is now busy organizing the presidential campaign of Grigory Yavlinsky.”

Ex-Deputy of the state Duma added that to quarrel with them is almost impossible, but Katz — “a talented person”.

According to political analyst Mikhail Vinogradov, “Apple” problems, the argument of Katz and Gudkov will bring. The story could play only in the case if it happened in the mayoral election.

Apparently, disorder is paired greatly reduce the chances of Gudkov the nomination of “Yabloko”, so be glad of what happened fit Sergei Mitrokhin. He called both parties to the conflict “immature” and I am sure that to political activity and solving problems of Muscovites, they are not ready, especially if you can’t understand the relationships between them. However, it is not so simple.

Experts agree that it is unlikely that this situation someone from participants of the dysfunctional tandem is planned and has ulterior motives. Although this is debatable, as it turned out, the winner still Maxim Katz.

You should pay attention to the statement of Gudkova that Katz engaged in a campaign of Grigory Yavlinsky. Is it really so?

“Katz is not a member of staff, but as a supporter of the Yavlinsky campaign helps to measure the forces,” a comment on the question of the role of Katz gave a press Secretary of Grigory Yavlinsky Igor Yakovlev, in fact I literally repeating the answer of the Katz about his involvement in the campaign.

So, perhaps, selling Gudkov, Katz played a more favorable party, becoming a confidant of the presidential candidate.
