MOSCOW, May 28 (Itar-Tass) - The opposition has filed a bid in the Moscow mayoralty to hold a march on June 12. The participants in the march are to meet from 12:00 until 13:00 Moscow time on June 12 on the Kaluzhskaya Square, the organizers of the action Pyotr Tsarkov and Alexander Ryklin told Itar-Tass.
The march is scheduled on the route Yakimanka-Bolotnaya Square and should finish at the Balchug Hotel. The numerical strength of the march applied for in the bid is up to 30,000 people. The main demand is to terminate the persecution of the defendants in the criminal case over massive disorders on the Bolotnaya Square on May 6, 2012 and their immediate release. “The march is timed to the transfer of the criminal case against 12 defendants in the court,” Ryklin added.
