MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) — If Moscow creates its own "Hyde Park" its geographical location should be convenient both for the authorities and the city residents, Deputy secretary of the Presidium of the United Russia General Council Yuri Shuvalov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. Shuvalov commented on Vladimir Putin's proposal who suggested creating a place similar to the London Hyde Park for meetings and for people expressing their public stance.
"In a free country that Russia is today a discussion should go on permanently, and a procedure of offering the people a possibility to express their opinion should be simplified to its maximum. Creating a venue, where the procedure of coordination would be reduced to a minimum, is the right thing to do," Shuvalov stressed.
"In case of certain mass acts, which entail a change in the traffic schedule, a lot of coordination is required. But, creating a site similar to the Hyde Park will offer additional opportunities to public organizations, including political ones, which might need to express their point of view", Shuvalov said.
Shuvalov is against confining such activities to the outskirts only. "As a matter of fact this venue should be in a tell-tale place to the city residents; a certain permanent site, which should be located in a place convenient both to the city authorities and the city residents," Shuvalov stressed, adding " a metro station should be nearby as a minimum."
