MOSCOW, February 24 (Itar-Tass) — The committee organizing "For Fair Elections" rallies plans to hold mass meetings in Moscow on March 8, 9 and 10.
The applications were submitted to the Moscow mayor's office on Friday, Sergei Udaltsov, the leader of the Left Front told Itar-Tass.
"An application is made for March 10 to organize a march from the Poklonnaya Hill to Novy Arbat, where a 50,000-people meeting is planned, and applicatons are filed to hold 50,000 rallies on March 8 and 9," he said.
The organizing committee plans to take more active actions after the presidential elections, and much will depend on how they are held, but applications to hold meetings should be submitted beforehand, he explained.
"We hope Muscovites will take an active part in the actions, since they will be held on the weekend,” he added
Udaltsov also noted that the applications were handed in without incidents. “There were no activists of pro-Kremlin movements this time, and there were no conflicts,” he said.
