MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - A rally in support of oppositionist Alexei Navalny may be organised in Moscow’s Tverskoy Boulevard on Friday, Acting Deputy Head of Regional Security Alexei Mayorov said.
“Earlier, we registered plans for a rally in support of a mayoral candidate Navalny,” he said. He added the applications for rallies had been filed both for Friday and for July 18. “Yesterday, nobody showed up at the place, so may happen today, too.”
The department said the venue in the applications had been by the monument to Timiryazev. The time is set between 14:00 and 22:00 Moscow time. The number of participants was planned at 100 people.
For Friday, Moscow has pre-planned “over 40 events like pickets and rallies.” “The organisers differ, from mayoral candidates’ headquarters to separate groups on the issues, which they would want to present, or on certain political issues.”
On July 18, the Kirov region’s Leninsky Court confirmed Navalny was guilty of organisation of a theft of big amounts of money, and Ofitserov supported the theft. The court sentenced Navalny to a five-year term and a fine of 500,000 roubles. Later on the day, in Moscow and several other cities were rallies supporting the oppositionist.
