MOSCOW, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow Mayor’s Office will continue talks with the Opposition on a site for holding a rally on March 5, the day after the presidential election, a member of the organizing committee of the rallies For Fair Elections, Sergei Parkhomenko, announced in the social network Facebook. He said the co-chairman of the unregistered Party of People’s Freedom (PARNAS), Vladimir Ryzhkov, had a phone call from the Mayor’s Office.
“As far as I understand, the Opposition’s action on February 26 proved rather big to produce an impression on our respected and experienced counterparts,” Parkhomenko believes.
Earlier, the Moscow Mayor’s office refused to meet the Opposition’s request for holding a rally in Moscow’s Lubyanskaya Square on March 5. It suggested a number of alternative venues, such as Bolotnaya Square, the Taras Shevchenko Embankment or the Poklonnaya Hill memorial.
The Opposition demands to demonstrate in the very center of Moscow. As an alternative it has mentioned Manezhnaya Square.
