The decision made by the Supreme Court was apparently predetermined. It is a political decision, in fact it had nothing to do with the Central Electoral Commission or a trial. But for us all what happened today - our complaint and its examination – was not just a formality. It is important for us to go through the whole procedure prescribed by law until the end. We act according to the law, the law is on our side, and time will put everything in its place and I think this will happen soon.

Certainly, we are right not only legally. It was very important to give [legal] arguments and we did this, but there is also common sense. And it prompts that only according to official estimates of the CEC, much more than two million voters voted for us at the parliamentary elections [of December 4, 2011].

Considering the fact that a draft law targeted at reduction of the number of signatures for presidential candidates from [non-parliamentary] parties to 100,000 had been already submitted to the State Duma, the trial about 2 million signatures is simply absurd.

The fact that we demonstrated this nonsense to everyone in Russia was also part of our work.
Once again I would like to thank all of you who participated in the collection of signatures, who helped to collect them and who signed up. Your political position can not be “cancelled”, and eventually it is the most important achievement of this campaign for collection of voters’ signatures.

We have used all the opportunities so that to continue the line of our parliamentary campaign targeted at conscientious participation of people, citizens in the political process. In my opinion, we have succeeded.

We will continue. We will build the future of our country.
