MOSCOW, January 7 (Itar-Tass) — A law on spots similar to Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park, where rallies can be organized without special notifications, enters into force in Moscow.
On December 26 the Moscow city Duma adopted amendments to the law on rallies, gatherings, pickets and demonstrations. On December 27 they were published by the official newspaper of the Moscow city government Tverskaya 13. Thus, ten days after this publication these amendments enter into force.
Special spots for public gatherings will be created in Moscow’s Gorky Park and Sokolniki, where in compliance with the federal law people can organize their actions from 07:00 a.m. to 22:00 p.m.
Organizers of mass actions should inform and not notify the relevant body of power about the plans to hold an action on a special spot no later than three days before it starts.
Moreover, under the new rules any car actions on and within Sadovoye Koltso (Garden Ring) will be banned.
