The mayoralty of Ekaterinburg has agreed to conduct an independent survey on the construction of a temple on the site of the city square. About it reports “Interfax” on Thursday, may 16.
“The regional authorities expect to spend from the Fund “Socium” in your poll. But none of them will be protesting perceived by the public as legitimate,” — said the Deputy mayor Catherine Kuzemka.
She also said that according to previous polls, the majority of residents belong to the construction of the temple indifferently.
Earlier Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at a media Forum of independent regional and local media, has offered to conduct a survey among the local population. He stressed that religious buildings should unite people, not divide.
Mass protests began in the city on Monday, may 13. The protesters prevented construction work on the square near Sverdlovsk drama theatre.
