MOSCOW, September 13 (Itar-Tass) – Moscow mayoralty has warned the opponents of the March of Millions, which a number of oppositionist organizations and movements are going to hold in Moscow Saturday, September 15, that the forces of law and order will cut short any unlawful and unauthorized actions.
An appeal to hold a ‘March of Billions’ with the display of ‘Crosses, daggers and silver bullets’ was uploaded in the Internet Thursday. It authors believe the ‘March of Billions’ will help stop the ‘March of Millions’.
The youth grouping called for holding the action in the same place and at the same time as the opposition-sponsored street protest.
“We didn’t get a notification on any such action and if they /activists of the youth group/ take to the streets without coordinating their activities with us, their actions will be cut short then,” Vassily Oleinik, a deputy chief of Moscow City’s Regional Security Department told Itar-Tass.
In the meantime, the organizers of the ‘March of Millions’ said they do not think the threats to disrupt their street protest are realistic.
“I think this is scandal-raising and an attempt of self-advertizing,” Sergei Udaltsov, the leader of the Leftwing Front movement told Itar-Tass. “I doubt very much the ability of those people to organize something really serious.”
“It’s quite possible about a dozen people will come /to the ‘March of Billions’/ indeed but the police should take measures then,” he said. “I’m sure we’ll cope with the situation and there’ll be no disorders.”
