MOSCOW, February 4 (Itar-Tass) — More than 100,000 thousand people have come to the rally of patriotic forces on Poklonnaya Hill – a big memorial square and park area located to the west of Moscow City’s center, a spokesman for the Department of Regional Security told reporters.
“All the Poklonnaya Hill area is literally packed with people,” the spokesman said.
The organizers said in their request for authorizing the action they expected the participation of 15,000 people.
Nadezhda Korneyeva. a deputy chairperson of the Patriots of Russia party, who signed the petition to the city authorities to issue official permission for the rally, said the objective of the political forces participating in it was to speak up in favor of a revived great Russia.
She said the people who would come to Poklonnaya Hill did not want a slide back into the chaos of the 1990’s and they were generally opposed to ‘orange’, ‘pink’ or any other ‘color’ revolutions.
