MOSCOW, May 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s police have demanded that protesters to leave Chistoprudny Boulevard by noon on Wednesday, one of the opposition activists, a Solidarity leader Ilya Yashin, said on Tuesday.
“Police officers demanded that we clear the territory by 12:00 Moscow time. By that time, we are to decide whether the camp should stay here or not, whether it abides by the court ruling or not, or whether it moves to another place,” Yashin said, addressing the protesters.
Earlier in the day, Moscow’s Basmanny district court obliged the authorities to liquidated the camp of protesters in Chistoprudny Boulevard, thus satisfying a lawsuit filed by local dwellers. The court ruled the passiveness of authorities as illegal. Under the court ruling, the police are obliged to “put an end to the political action, which violates public order,” and local authorities are obliged to ensure security of people.
According to Yashin, protesters cannot challenge the court ruling, since they are not a party to trial.
Now the situation in Chistoprudny Boulevard is calm, with about 500 people staying there. In an hour, the protesters plan to hold an “assembly” to take a decision about the camp’s future.
In the meantime, the opposition party Yabloko said it would challenge the court ruling. “Our lawyers are currently looking at challenging this ruling. It was passed in a hurry, so it is likely to have a lot of procedural errors,” the party’s leader, Sergei Mitrokhin, tolf journalists.
