MOSCOW, February 24 (Itar-Tass) — The Young Russia movement submitted applications to the Moscow mayor's office to hold mass rallies in central Moscow on March 10, the movement's leader and Public Chamber member Maxim Mishchenko told Itar-Tass.
"We have filed applications to hold rallies at Manezhnaya Square, Revolution Square, Lubyanka Square, Pushkinskaya Square and other less important squares," he said. "We have not filed an application for Novy Arbat. In my view, there is no suitable place to hold a rally there."
Meanwhile, on Friday morning opposition activists submitted an application to organize a march from Poklonnaya Hill to Novy Arbat on March 10.
Mishchenko also said no answer was received so far to the application to hold a rally at Lubyanka Square on March 5. The opposition also applied for the place and the day. In the Young Russia leader's view, the opposition intends to "put pressure on the Central Election Commission when votes are counted (after the presidential elections).
