MOSCOW, April 30 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow mayor’s office has said it won’t sanction an opposition march on May 6, Alexei Mayorov, the head of the Moscow regional security department, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"We are ready to discuss the rally’s format at negotiations on May 2 and we could even consider the possibility to extend its duration by an hour. Holding a rally on a working day is impossible,” Mayorov said.
Representatives of the Opposition Coordination Council, who have submitted an application for the rally, insist they are going to discuss the march at a rally on May 2.
"We are insisting on the march. We have offered several routes: from Novokuznetskaya along Pyatnitskaya street, the Bolshaya Polyanka street and Yakimanka and even one exotic route from the Balchug Kempinsky Hotel on the embankment,” Boris Nemtsov, an Opposition Coordination Council member, told Itar-Tass.
"The action will take place on May 6 in this or that format. I would also like to remind Mr. Mayorov that he is personally responsible for people’s security,” Nemtsov emphasized.
