Nevertheless to achieve registration in a judicial order to active workers of the TIGER it was not necessary.

Mister Vedenev has explained necessity of official registration of movement to that “ Together with the status of the legal person the TIGER will have an opportunity to direct official inquiries to authorities and to achieve the right to carrying out of independent public actions “. Till now the TIGER has been compelled to spend the majority of the actions together with the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, but the union with communists pushes away many supporters of the TIGER. “ we the independent organisation also do not want to resemble a youth wing of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation “ - mister Barashkov has told yesterday.

We suggested them to take part on the platform in discussion on development of anti-recessionary measures. They have refused. The serious program at them is not present. The only thing that they can - to rustle in streets “ - considers and. An island of the secretary of regional political council “ an United Russia “ Michael Veselov. The head of fraction of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation in Legislative Assembly of Primorski Krai Vladimir Bespalov pays attention that “ in movement the TIGER exists some currents and grouping of Lambs-vedenev represents only one them “. “ These people any more do not conduct for a long time active protest activity. Other “tigers“ who co-operate with us actively work. One of them, Artema Samsonov, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation puts forward on by-election in a thought of Vladivostok “ - mister Bespalov has informed. “ further someone will leave supporters of the TIGER to us, someone in general will depart from a policy, and someone will co-operate with the party in power “ - the communist doubts viability of new public organisation. And political scientist Peter Hanas believes that “ the automobile subjects on which the TIGER has risen, are not so actual “. “ I Think that in a new political season they will deal with more local problems which dare at level of the governor and the mayor “ - mister Hanas speaks. He yet does not see preconditions for new mass protest actions in Primorski Krai the TIGER could become which initiator.
