About 20 people staged a rally in Ulan-Ude against Buryatia joining the DFO

In Ulan-Ude, around 20, people went to an unauthorized rally to the government building of Buryatia, demanding the return of the republic from the Far Eastern Federal District to the Siberian one. Also, the protesters asked to prohibit deforestation in the Baikal natural territory.

As the Kommersant, participants to the protest action, which was called an unauthorized gathering of the national assembly of the indigenous people of the republic, were invited through social networks. The participants were unhappy that the transfer from one federal district to another occurred suddenly, without a referendum. The protesters could not name the exact minuses from the inclusion of Buryatia in the FEFD, but expressed concern that the distribution of free hectares in the republic could lead to a massive settlement of its territory by the Chinese.

People wanted to meet with the head of Buryatia, Alexey Tsydenov, but the guards stopped them at the checkpoint. A spokesman for the republic’s head, Aleksey Fishev, invited the protesters to organize a meeting later. As a result, the protesters were taken to the national library, where the police handed them agendas.

In November, on the site change.org appeared petition against the inclusion of Buryatia in the Far Eastern Federal District. The author asks the president of Russia, deputies of the State Duma and the government of the republic, to leave the territory in the Siberian Federal District. Also on this site have published another petition to the Constitutional Court, the Council of Federation and the State courts. Its author assures that Buryatia will lose the basic “Siberian” energy tariff.
