During the riot a local protest symbolic language was elaborated.
The main slogans of the protest are: “Freedom to Sergey Furgal”, “Putin to resign”, “Wake up cities, this is trouble with our homeland”. At the same time the main part of protest symbolic – flags, posters, flyers - is associated with Soviet Union. In July-August the relationship of Soviet (red flags), Russian (tricolors) and regional (green-blue-white flags) was about 10-20-70 (%), but in September-November it was changed to 40-10-50 (%).
It may indicate (i) association in collective imagination about social justice with a collective myth about Soviet Union and (ii) accented localism of the protesters.
Therefore, it makes sense to assume that in the case of a victory, the protests will lead not to the development of a “democratic local Russian republic”, but to the creation of a local analogue of the LDPR (“Luhansk & Donetsk People’s Republics”).
