Two Protest Actions Against the Petrol Price Surge in Moscow

Yesterday in Moscow there were two protest actions against the petrol's price surge. The action took place in the Bolotnaya Square, supported by 200 people. At the same time, there was a trucks' rally on the Leningradskoye highway.

The action was coordinated with the city's authorities and lasted about half an hour. Several people addressed the issue, including the head of "Fair Russia" fraction Sergey Mironov. The action's participants demanded of petrol's decrease in value of 30 percent.

The trucks' rally wasn't approved by the authorities, but the police didn't stop the action. 16 trucks took part in the rally. They went through the Leningradskoye highway with the banners "The petrol's price in Russia must be 15 rubles!" on the sides of the cars.

Similar protest actions took place in 18 Russian cities, including Kirov and Izhevsk. And it is not the first protest action of  car owners. In June 2011 The Russian Car Owners Federation organized the "Stop-Petrol" rally, which was suppressed by the police.
