Old talk[edit]

If you ask me, I'd place a "speedy delete" tag over this article, because the described event is nothing more that a disorderly conduct incident (what they call мелкое хулиганство in Russia) and not some notable demonstration worth paying attention to (unlike a Dissenters March, for instance). Moreover, I tend to think that this whole event was a pre-paid provocation, but that's my personal opinion. Let's hear what others have to say about this article.

I'd take it to WP:AFD with WP:NOT#NEWS, WP:NOT#SOAP, WP:NOT#BLOG being valid reasons. Overdepedence on blogs is another reason, as is the linking to obviously carefully picked links to create a synthesis. I have to laugh at it though; Selishev looks like he is about 17 years old (about the same age as the protestors I guess), and there is no corresponding article in .ru wikipedia, so I have distinct feeling WP:NOTADVOCATE really would come into play. --Russavia Dialogue Stalk me 20:52, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
I support renominating the article for deletion after a reasonable time. No notability is shown. Just a case of disorderly conduct (that's how you call мелкое хулиганство in English, I think) trying to attract attention and foreign funding. --Anthony Ivanoff (talk) 08:25, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!
