MOSCOW, March 15, 15:07 /ITAR-TASS/. Two marches to support Crimea and “against the reuniting of Crimea and Russia” were organized in central Moscow on Saturday.
About 15,000 gathered for the march in support of Crimea and against fascism, the Moscow police press service said.
According to the police, about 3,000 gathered at Strastnoi Boulevard for the march against the re-uniting of Crimea and Russia. The beginning was delayed. Organizers explained they were waiting for the column in support of Crimea to pass. The demonstrators were going from Trubnaya Square to Revolution Square.
Opposition activists on Strastnoi Boulevard had in their hands Russian and Ukraine flags and flags of the RPR-Parnas party. At the head of the column were the party's co-chairman Boris Nemtsov and State Duma deputy Dmitry Gudkov.
