MOSCOW, December 10 (Itar-Tass) — One of opposition leaders Eduard Limonov staged an unauthorized rally in the Revolution Square in the centre of Moscow. He is observed by around 200 people, itar-Tass reports.
Despite the fact that the authorities did not permit a rally in the Revolution Square, police take no measures and conduct themselves very properly. Several columns are marching, as before, from the Revolution Square to the Bolotnaya Square where the authorized opposition rally “For Honest Elections” is now in progress.
All of them are marching along side-walks, most of them in silence. But some members of nationalist movements yet shout out opposition and even nationalistic slogans. Some of them bear posters, others sing songs. Part of the crowd chant “Revolution!” But police officers do not take any measures against these marchers. Nobody was detained.
Choppers are flying along the route of columns’ march.
Meanwhile, the chief department of the Interior Ministry for Moscow placed a report at its site on Friday evening, saying that citizens who would come to the Teatralnaya and Revolution squares, can reach the Bolotnaya Square across the Lubyanskaya Square, Staraya Square, the Kitaigorodsky By-Street, along the Moskvoretskaya Embankment and then across the Moskvoretsky Bridge.
Police warned that “the march was agreed upon only along side-walks by groups of citizens without slogans and streamers”. “Otherwise, this will be appraised as a violation of public law and order as well as creation of difficulties for motor traffic”.
