MOSCOW, March 10 (Itar-Tass) — Police cuts short an unauthorized march by nationalists who left the rally “For honest elections” in Novy Arbat, Itar-Tass learnt at the press service of the Moscow Police Department.
“A group of citizens who profess nationalist views and who left the rally, took an attempt at making an unauthorized march with the use of burning fires in the Stary Arbat Street,” the police department reported.
However, the action was quickly stopped.
Earlier, Tass reported that one of nationalist leaders Dmitry Demushkin gathered a group of nationalists and left the rally with them. As a result, nationalists refused to participate in the same action with liberals. The group of young men, numbering 50-70 walked along Novy Arbat and turned to Stary Arbat.
The rally “For honest elections” continues now.
Some 10,000 people gathered in Novy Arbat at 14.00, out of whom 8,000 stand directly in front of the stage, while some 2,000 walk around the grounds, surrounded by police for a declared 50,000 rally. “Some people are leaving the rally,” Moscow police reported.
This notwithstanding, rally organizers give information about 30,000-50,000 participants.
