MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) — On Wednesday Moscow authorities declared that they hope the organizers of the White Ring protest scheduled to take place on the Garden Ring motorway on February 26 will realize the possible consequences such mass acts might entail, Alexander Gorbenko, deputy Moscow mayor told journalists on Wednesday.
A meeting with the organizers of the White Ring protest - Sergei Parkhomenko, Vladimir Ryzhkov, Boris Nemtsov, was held at the security department of the Moscow government on Tuesday. "It was not an easy conversation," Gorbenko told journalists. The organizers of the act carry a huge burden of responsibility because it is impossible to close the ring without halting traffic," Gorbenko stressed.
"We drew their attention to the fact that in the event of violations of public order, the Moscow Head of the Interior Department will take respective measures. I think we found a common language," Gorbenko said.
Asked whether the White Ring organizers could guarantee order during the act, Gorbenko said: "All of them are well trained people, but no one can give such guarantees." "No one knows what particular people might join the live chain. Provocations are possible. We all know that nationalists take part in all the mass events," Gorbenko warned.
