Farmers went on protest rally on tractors from Kuban to Moscow


Farmers from the Krasnodar region (Kuban) went on tractors to Moscow seeking for a meeting with federal authorities. Protesters are going to talk about corruption and illegal takeovers in the region.

On August 21, a column of 17 tractors and a few dozen cars started moving towards the neighboring Rostov region. One of the organizers of the rally Vasily Melnichenko said that in just few first hours the column was stopped by the police 7 times.

Before the run on tractors started, there was a protest rally in the Kazanskaya village. One of his slogans was “Give us our land back!”

Farmers from other regions plan to support their colleagues from Kuban.
