Yabloko: a fish rotting from the head-2

In my recent post, I suggested that Yabloko may not be serious at all about participating in the March 11 marathon of regional elections.  A fresh evidence came from Pskov, where Yabloko had called off its already submitted party list, citing an "administrative pressure" on its candidates as a reason.  Yabloko still plans to run candidates in single-mandate districts, where they (as well as all others) will inevitably loose to United Russia’s candidates.

The only alternative explanation to Yabloko’s behavior I can see is money.  Yabloko is obviously short on funds.  For as long as its list is registered in Moscow, and there is still a possibility to push it through in St. Petersburg — two cities where the party has a realistic chance to get into city halls — all monies will go there.  All other campaigns (12 of them in total) will be skipped on the pretense of "political pressure" from the authorities.
