MOSCOW, May 6 (Itar-Tass) — Participants in the “March of Millions” to be flagged off on Sunday at 16.00 and to eclipse with a rally in the Bolotnaya Square, are converging on Moscow’s Kaluzhskaya Square.
One of the action’s organizers and leader of the Left Front Sergei Udaltsov arrived at the Kaluzhskaya Square.
“We regard the elections in March as illegitimate, and Vladimir Putin’s inauguration scheduled for tomorrow as illegal. We want to express our attitude to this with the Sunday powerful protest action,” he told reporters. “People who are present here, express not only their own opinion, but the opinion of millions of other people. Therefore, our action is called “March of Millions”.
When Udaltsov was heading for a metal detector, a young man asked the Left Front leader why he had not attend a court hearing in Ulyanovsk, examining a case on beating a woman reporter. “Sergei, what is your disease? Why has not you turned up at court? If you have a sick certificate, why have you come to the rally?” the unidentified young man asked.
Udaltsov’s sympathizers hushed up the questions by chanting “Provocateur!” Udaltsov also described the young man’s behavior as a provocation. “We have got accustomed to this and know how to respond to provocations,” he noted.
Organisers of the “March of Millions” indicated in their application participation of 5,000 people in the action.
