ST. PETERSBURG, September 15 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 300 people participated in the opposition march in St. Petersburg on Saturday, the press service of the regional police department said.
Demonstrators were originally planned to form three columns for the march, but since the number was not large enough, they united in one column with ten LGBT representatives at the rear, police sources said.
No incidents were reported during the march.
A meeting is being held on the Mars Field, and other participants have joined. A total of over 800 people are present, the press service reported.
