MOSCOW, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow authorities have refused a request by Ukrainian opposition forces to picket the city's Ukrainian embassy in support of protests taking place in Kiev, Oleg Kozlovsky, one of the planned event's organizers, told Itar-Tass.
"The district administration has denied us permission to picket near the Ukrainian embassy. We have been offered a different site - in a garden on the Devichje Pole premises. This site does not suit us because it is a deserted area," Kozlovsky said.
"We are recalling our notification to the district administration and will hold the planned act in the form of a people's gathering," he said.
Official notification about the plans said some 50 pickets would be demonstrating.
