MOSCOW, January 20 (Itar-Tass) — Organisers of a march and rally of the opposition due on February 4 promise to provide security there, leader of the Left Front Sergei Udaltsov told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“We plan to form political sectors’ columns – a column of left forces, a column of patriotic forces and others,” he said. “We shall provide security jointly, with volunteers, and of course with the police.”
“If somebody violates the order, we shall consider such actions as provocative, and will hand such people over to the police,” Udaltsov said adding that the Moscow Mayor’s Office had not given an answer to the application they filed.
The officially stated objective of the march and rally is “protest against violations during the State Duma elections of December 4, 2011.” Organisers expect 50,000 participants.
