MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s authorities are very unlikely to allow Sergei Udaltsov, the coordinator of the Left Fron, to hold a rally in Moscow’s Square of Revolution on February 26, due to a number of reasons, deputy mayor Alexander Gorbenko said on Wednesday.
“As for Udaltsov’s application for authorization of a 1,000-strong rally in the Square of Revolution, I am 99 percent sure the rally will not be sanctioned,” he told journalists.
“The first reason is that other events, Shrovetide festival, have already been planned there. Second: we have some information from open sources that the rally might draw much more participants and 1,000,” he said.
He also noted that the mayor’s office will offer Udaltsov another venue. “We shall think. It might be either the Bolotnaya Square or Sakharova Street. We will talk it over with him later on Wednesday or on Thursday,” Gorbenko added.
