MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s authorities are asking the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) to give up the idea of staging a march in the downtown of Moscow on February 23, deputy mayor of Moscow Alexander Gorbenko said on Wednesday.
“We are talking it over with the communists. I have spoken to Vladimir Kashin. We strongly recommend to give up the idea. We will offer other venues,” he told journalists. “We think Manezhnaya Square would be the best choice if the Federal Guard Service gives its consent,” he said.
Earlier, Gorbenko said that on February 8 the Communist Party applied for an authorization to hold a march and a rally from Pushkinskaya Square along Tverskaya Street to the Teatralnaya Square from 13:00 to 14:30 Moscow time. They number of participants is expected to be up to 5,000.
