MOSCOW, June 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s authorities have offered the opposition two options for a March of Millions on June 12, the Russia Day.
“The first option is to hold a rally in the Sakarov Avenue, the second one is a march along the Krymskaya embankment and a rally near the Museon park, maybe in the park, depending on how many people take part in the action,” Alexei Mayorov, the director of Moscow’s regional security department, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
According to Mayorov, the second venue is located inside the Garden Ring, a thing much wanted by the opposition. “These are the only two options that do not tell on plans of festival events in the city,” he stressed.
Members of the steering committee plan to gather at about 16:00 Moscow time on Friday to discuss these two options. Earlier, after the authorities had refused to sanction a march from the Tverskaya Zastava Square to the Borovitskaya Square (and a rally there) and a rally of the League of Voters in a park in front of the Academician Sakharov Museum, the steering committee suggested that the Moscow mayor’s office should choose a venue inside the Garden Ring.
Earlier, Mayorov said that an “agreement was reached in principle” about the route of the March of Millions the opposition plans for June 12. The march might proceed from the Kaluzhskaya Square along the Yakimanka Street to be crowned by a rally in front of the Udarnik cinema theatre.
“Yesterday, we received delegates from the opposition, at their request. They offered a compromise solution that had previously been turned down because the venue, according to previous plans, had been meant to host festival events,” he said. “Now we are studying the proposal of the applicants.”
The final decision is to be taken by 18:00 Moscow time on Friday.
