MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow police said on Thursday it will disperse any number of participants in unpermitted opposition rallies expected over the weekend.
The warning came in response to allegations posted in Internet that quoted Moscow police chief Viktor Golovanov as admitting his officers may side with protesters if half a million people come out into the streets.
“For several days users of social networks have been receiving a report: ‘Moscow police chief Viktor Golovanov has said: If 5000 people go into the streets they will be dispersed, if they number 50000 – police will stand silently, if 500000 people come out – police will side with them,” the press service of the Moscow police said.
“As it is absolutely clear the report is both a lie and a provocation, the head of the Moscow police, Viktor Golovanov, is not going to comment it. Opposition activists often resort to mean tricks to discredit people who enforce law and order in city streets,” it said.
“There is no difference for us how many people, five or five thousand, violate the law. We shall simply use different means to disperse the violators,” police warned.
