General Aleksandr Lebed, a leader of the Congress of Russian Communities (KRO) political movement, told a Stavropol audience that the Congress’ main task was to "restore Russia’s single defense space within its historic borders: the Russian Empire and the USSR." But "the restoration of a single defense space today is possible only through political and economic methods," he told a press conference after meeting with voters. Lebed also warned against redistributing property in Russia "through forced total nationalization." "This may lead to civil war in the country," he said. (3)
