MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow mayor’s office permitted supporters of Vladimir Putin to hold a march on February 23 along the Frunzenskaya embankment and a rally in Luzhniki, deputy mayor Alexamder Gorbenko said on Wednesday.
“On Wednesday morning we met with the organizers and signed all relevant papers. The march will start from 54 Frunzenskaya embankment, near the Andreyevsky bridge at 11:30 Moscow time and will proceed to Luzhniki. The number of participants is up to 40,000,” Gorbenko said.
According to Gorbenko, the rally will be held at Luzhniki from 13:00 to 14:30 Moscow time, with the number of participants up to 100,000.
“Not all those who will take part in the rally are going to take part in the march. The venue chosen for the march will cause next to no discomfort for city dwellers,” he noted. “I hope the rally will be held in comfortable conditions.”
The deputy mayor notified that motor traffic along the Frunzenskaya embankment will be suspended from 08:00 a.m. Moscow time. “It will be necessary to install metal detectors. I think traffic will resume after 12:00,” he said.
According to earlier reports, the All-Russia Popular Front and Putin’s election headquarters planned to hold a 200,000-strong march on February 23 from Moscow’s Tverskaya Zastava Square and a rally on Manezhnaya Square.
