Activists of the youth movement Nashi "congratulated" the Ukrainian president on his defeat in the presidential election in a rally near the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow on Monday.
"Over 100 Nashi activists rallied in front of the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow to congratulate the Ukrainian people on the defeat of the Viktor Yuschenko policy of rapprochement with American 'friends,' and to sum up the grim results of the Orange president's five-year rule," Nashi spokesperson Kristina Potupchik told Interrax.
"After coming to power and securing support from well-known overseas partners, Yuschenko pledged quite a lot to his people and the neighboring leaders. Nashi activists demonstrated the difference between Yuschenko's pledges and actual deeds," Potupchik said.
