"The process has begun, and it cannot be stopped. [...] There will be 10 more rallies of 3,000 people, and then suddenly a half a million people will gather. [...] This train is not going back to the station."

Anatoly Chubais has commented on the future of the Russian opposition movement in an interview with the journal Itogi. The quotation here is from a translation that was published in 'Chubais Predicts Anti-Kremlin Rallies of 500,000', The Moscow Times, 30 October 2012.

The passage reads: ' "The process has began, and it cannot be stopped," Chubais said in an interview published in this week's issue of Itogi magazine. "Even though the last march attracted only 30,000, not 100,000, that does not mean things are drying up," he said. "There will be 10 more rallies of 3,000 people, and then suddenly a half a million people will gather," he said. "I am 100 percent sure of that! This train is not going back to the station." '
