MOSCOW, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— A rally of the nationalists ended on the Krymsky Val Street at the Central House of Artist in downtown Moscow on Sunday. The organizers of the action officially stated about the end to the rally.
“The maximum number of participants in the rally reached about 2,500 people,” the press service of the Moscow main police department reported. Meanwhile, the demonstrators began leaving the venue of the rally massively in the middle of the action, and no more than 1,000 people were staying there 40 minutes before the end of the action.
“No serious violations of the public order were reported,” the press service reported.
The speakers demanded bury the body of Vladimir Lenin, stop the inflow of migrants, introduce a visa regime with the countries in Central Asia and “stop feeding the Caucasus.”

Before the rally the demonstrators passed in a march dubbed the Russian march from the Yakimanskaya Embankment. About 6,000 people were participating in the march, while the organizers claimed for 10,000 participants.
In general, no serious incidents were reported during the march, though some young people were launching flares and smoke charges. But the police did not detain anyone. Meanwhile, the faces of many demonstrators were covered with scarves and gauzes that is a violation of the rules for a massive action.
The demonstrators were chanting nationalistic and anti-presidential slogans. They traditionally demanded cancel Article 282 of the Criminal Code, though they were crying out quite social slogans “Sober Russia will become Great!” and pagan slogans “Glory to Perun!” Some Orthodox banner-bearers with the icons were chanting the prayers during the march.
The Moscow authorities permitted the march and the rally, though the Russian march raised an ambiguous response in the society and the Moscow authorities even asked to ban it.
The reinforced police patrols were on duty during the whole action, about 2,000 policemen and voluntary guards ensured security at the Russian march.
The Russian march is held already for four years and for the first time in the centre of Moscow, before this the Moscow authorities permitted it in the Moscow district Lyublino.
