A RIA Novosti correspondent reports that opponents have gathered outside the building of the Federation Council to protest the land Code under the slogan "No to the sale of Russian Land!" The left-wing of the Communist Party organised the demonstration, which numbers about 400 people. The party has long been against the introduction of the Land Code. The document itself is being considered by the Federation Council on Wednesday. It had been a source of contention for months between the right wing majority and left wing of the State Duma, but it was eventually adopted by deputies.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
