He reminded that Sergei Udaltsov had already visited the Penza region several times and last autumn it became the first region the opposition activist came to after having being released from the colony where he had spent 4.5 years for organization of mass riots in Bolotnaya square in Moscow on May 6, 2012.

"We have also invited Maxim Shevchenko. He is a well-known journalist, the authorized representative of the presidential candidate [Pavel] Grudinin," the interlocutor said.

He added that the coordinator of the public movement of construction investors of Russia Igor Asanov is also expected to come.

According to Sergei Padalkin, representatives of Communist Party already submitted a notification to the Penza administration about the intention to hold the rally near the building of the former Rodina cinema from 12.00 to 14.00 but the answer was not received yet.

"Most likely it will not be endorsed," the coordinator of Left Front in the Volga region assumed explaining that in this case the event, which is planned to be joined by representatives of different opposition forces, will be held on another site.
