Event description

Conflict situation with the exhibition "People of Maidan" has led to protests, which took place opposite the building of the Latvian foreign Ministry. The protesters demanded to expel the exhibition organizer Sergei Melnikoff from Latvia. The event was attended by about 30 people. Earlier Sergey Melnikoff said that Russian-speaking residents of Riga have to be exiled and transported to Siberia in cattle cars. Such statement was made after unidentified young men twice defeated a street photo exhibition, dedicated to the events on the Maidan in the winter of 2013/2014, Melnikoff believes that the Riga city Council is obliged to pay him compensation of 0.5 million euros for the fact that city police failed to prevent acts of vandalism, in addition, the mayor of Riga said that the exhibition will be minimized, because it has nationalist overtones.

01:17-01:37(ru) I came here to Express protest against the actions of the person the government allowed to carry out the exhibition dedicated to the Euromaidan. And the man himself says that his goal is to start a conflict between Russians and Latvians in Latvia.

the participant of meeting

01:37-01:55 (ru) We believe that the Melnikov is a provocateur! And he has no right to be here, being a stranger — not a journalist, not a photographer, he has no right to specify whom to take where and how to live.
