MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — A member of Russia’s Federation Council has called Moscow city mayor Sergei Sobyanin to prevent the nationalist activists’ march in the city centre on November 4.
“I receive messages from citizens who revolt against the fact that the Moscow mayor office permitted multi-thousand nationalist rallies on November 4, the National Unity Day,” Ruslan Gattarov said in his address faxed to Itar-Tass.
The Moscow mayor office permitted a 10,000 march on the Krymskaya Embankment and a 20,000 march in Lyublino, south-eastern Moscow, where nationalists have repeatedly held their actions.
The senator from the Chelyabinsk region expressed confidence that nationalist marches contradict the sense of the National Unity Day and pose a threat to public law and order.
“Proceeding from experience of previous Russian Marches we cannot rule out that nationalist flags will be hoisted on Moscow’s streets. I consider this inadmissible. Moscow was not conquered by German fascists and their symbols should not appear on the streets of the capital. This will insult the Russian nation and its history,” Gattarov said.
He called on the Moscow city mayor to consider an opportunity for taking the action from Moscow’s centre to Lyublino.
The head of Moscow’s regional security department, Alexei Mayorov, confirmed the Moscow mayor office permitted two nationalist marches in Moscow on November 4 – in the city centre and in Lyublino.
Meanwhile, one of the action’s organizers, a member of the Opposition Coordination Council, Vladimir Tor, told Itar-Tass that nationalist activists will hold their annual Russian March in Moscow’s centre on November 4.
“The march route will go through the Yakimanskaya and Krymskaya embankments to the Central House of Artists, where the rally will take place,” he said.
