MOSCOW, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow city metro will be open until 2:00 a.m. on March 5, the city transport department said explaining the decision with passenger convenience.
“The operating hours of the city metro were extended for transporting citizens on the election day. The city metro will be open until 2:00 a.m. on March 5,” it said.
In the words of Vice-Mayor Alexander Gorbenko, the post-election rallies will start at 9:00 p.m. There will be plenty of small demonstrations and pickets and a grand rally on Manezh Square. Small pickets and two large events – on Manezh and Pushkin Squares – are due on March 5. “The organizers can hardly estimate the number of participants precisely,” he said.
The Monday rally will put an additional strain on the Pushkinskaya metro station, the vice-mayor added.
