MOSCOW, June 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow authorities have permitted to hold the June 12 March of Millions along the Boulevard Ring, from Pushkin Square to Sakharov Avenue, head of the city public security department Alexei Mayorov said.
“The march will go along Strastnoy Boulevard and Petrovsky Boulevard to Turgenevskaya Square, where it will turn to Sakharov Avenue. There will be a rally on the inner side of the Garden Ring, on Sakharov Avenue,” he said.
Mayorov said the Garden Ring would not be closed for traffic.
He also said that the number of protesters must not exceed 50,000. The protesters will start gathering at noon; the march will start at 1:00 p.m. and the rally at 3:00 p.m. The action must end at 6:00 p.m.
Negotiations between the city administration and the opposition lasted for several days. The city authorities offered two routes to the opposition: a rally on Sakharov Avenue and a march along the Krymskaya Embankment and a rally near the Museum Park. They refused to grant permission to the march along Tverskaya Street with a rally on Borovitsksya Square for the March of Millions and the rally of the League of Voters near the Academician Sakharov Museum.
Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told the media that the Kremlin did not interfere in the decision of the Moscow authorities.
“Moscow authorities make independent decisions: they are in charge of the security of citizens in the constituent of the Russian Federation,” he said.
