MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow Mayor’s Office did not permit the opposition to hold a rally in support of the elections in the so-called coordination council. The rally was planned to hold in the Novopushkinsky yard on October 21.
“We refused to authorize a public event in the Novopushkinsky yard, the organizers were offered to find another venue,” deputy head of the Moscow regional security department Vasily Oleinik told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The Moscow Mayor’s Office earlier refused to authorize an opposition rally in the Novopushkinsky yard on October 20, proposing them to hold a protest action at the Central House of Artist. “We did not receive any responses to our proposals yet,” Oleinik said.
The opposition is to vote in the elections to its coordination council on October 20-21.
