Russian pro-Kremlin political youth movement set up a picket in front of the United Kingdom's Embassy in Moscow on Friday
A Russian pro-Kremlin political youth movement set up a picket in front of the United Kingdom's Embassy in Moscow on Friday. About 25 activists of the Nashi ("Ours") movement are demanding an apology from Ambassador Tony Brenton for participating in the Different Russia conference in Moscow July 12. Held by Russian opposition leaders ahead of the Group of Eight summit in St Petersburg, the conference aimed to draw attention to what organizers said was a clampdown by President Vladimir Putin's administration on democratic and economic freedoms. Nashi activist Yevgeny Ivanov said the conference was marred by the presence of Eduard Limonov, leader of the ultra-nationalist National Bolshevik Party, and Viktor Anpilov, head of the hard-line communist Working Russia party. "The ambassador offended all Russians by supporting these people," Ivanov said. The picket, which is expected to gather some 50 people, will last until 5.00 p.m. Moscow time (1.00 p.m. GMT).
