The Big arena stadium "Luzhniki" in Moscow could barely accommodate the people who came to the meeting-concert "For a strong Russia", organized by the election headquarters of Vladimir Putin. A few days before the rally, it became known that he rounded up students and state employees. In the stadium were not only Muscovites, but also residents of suburbs were brought to the capital by buses. In the end, the campaign came about a hundred thousand people, but some of them did not even wait for Putin's speech. During the rally the police detained several supporters of Alexei Navalny, including the civil activist Elena Zakharova. She was holding a poster "Putin out of Ukraine!". The shares were seen introduced the national diasporas of the former Soviet republics. On the main stage of Luzhniki stadium in expectation of Putin gathered his confidants, culture and sports, among them: Oleg Gazmanov, Sergey Zhukov from "Hands up!", Filipp Kirkorov, Polina Gagarina, conductor Valery Gergiev, actor Vladimir Mashkov, film Director Fedor Bondarchuk, Timothy and the team of Russia on hockey. "I greet you all in "Luzhniki", — has begun the speech Putin. — It is not "Puddle" was said a few years ago!". After a short welcome by the President of Russia sings the national anthem — the whole thing. With him singing support team is on the scene. A few days before the concert at different sites appeared the announcement of the participation in the rally in support of Putin for the money, pay from 300 to 500 rubles per visit "Luzhniki" on March 3. Camera correspondents of Radio Liberty recorded the moment of transfer of money to those who came to the rally-concert. But there were those who did not receive compensation and feel cheated. Several people from the crowd went to write statements to the police. About this Radio Liberty said Moscow schoolchildren also victims of the Scam. Police in order to avoid the crush had to build a narrow corridor for people fleeing the stadium and lined up at the entrance of metro station "Sportivnaya".
