Photo: Evgeny by Antonov/TASS It is updated in 18:48B Riga there took place the meeting in support of the mayor Neil Ushakov. According to the Latvian police, 3 thousand people took part in it. The action took place quietly. Earlier in an office and at Ushakov spent searches on the case of corruption when purchasing public transport for the city at home. The mayor Righi came to a meeting with the spouse. Participants of the action held in hand posters in support of Ushakov and flags of Latvia. The city's mayor apologized for the made mistakes, having said that he is not going to resign as his conscience is pure. The editor-in-chief of the Latvian newspaper "Segodnya" Andrey Shvedov told about a meeting of Business FM: Andrey Shvedov the editor-in-chief of the Latvian newspaper "Segodnya" "The main issue was how many the person how many people support him will come. The town, and political actions collect at us people on 100, at most on 200. It is possible to tell that the meeting in support of Ushakov was successful. By different estimates, came from one thousand to as some appraisers call, 5 thousand people. Town Hall Square accomodates about one thousand people, but around on small small streets of Old Righi there were still people, plus there was a certain rotation. I think, 2-3 thousand people came — quite a lot for Latvia, for Righi. Thus, the mayor Righi received an additional trump in the form of support of the population. I will remind that against it the Latvian ruling parties bring charges that he is guilty of the corruption scandal connected with purchase of trolleybuses the Riga thought. Official charges against the mayor are not brought, nevertheless requirements about his resignation are distributed. In reply today's action showed that the people support the mayor, political struggle will continue". Inhabitant Righi Valentina who visited a meeting shares impressions: "A meeting for that the mayor was not removed by a simple meeting in diet. It was not just for the mayor Neil Ushakov, it was for Latvia where our children were born. The people came quite a lot, of course, all supported and asked to leave Ushakov the mayor. Everything was so friendly, everything was so lovely and in a friendly way. It is time to raise eventually to us the head, it is time to argue also with the government. Everything occurred in two languages. Even under the law in general any speaker has no right to speak only Russian. He speaks in Latvian and right there translates the phrases into Russian. Neil Ushakov correctly told: with an ulterior motive the Latvian parties press him, they to him a finger point out the defects — here you promised, here did not make. Today at us magnificent trolleybuses go, buses, trams, all roads are repaired, restored. Today people from the whole country who not live in Riga came to support him". Neil Ushakov, the Consent party leader, Latvia supporting Russian-speaking inhabitants, last year kept the post after vote on the emergency zased
