MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Moscow City Hall has given the green light to opposition representatives - supporters of blogger Alexei Navalny - to hold a rally on May 5 in downtown Moscow, a senior city official said on Friday.

"We propose that our counterparts stage the May 5 event on Academic Sakharov Avenue," said Vladimir Chernikov, head of the regional security and anti-corruption department.

"We think this is a very good compromise solution but the opposition has so far said nothing," he added.

The opposition earlier wanted to hold a rally near the Russian State Duma headquarters but that request was denied.
