MOSCOW, September 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Opposition activists applied to the Moscow authorities on Monday to organize a “march of peace” on September 21, Sunday, one of the organizers, Sergei Davidis, told ITAR-TASS.
An application was submitted for an “all-Russian march of peace” of up to 50,000 people from Pushkin Square to Sakharov Avenue, he said.
RPR-Parnas party co-chairman Boris Nemtsov said earlier that opposition activists planned marches of peace in Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and other cities on September 21.
Meanwhile, Moscow regional security department deputy head Vasily Oleinik told ITAR-TASS that the proposed route would cross the route of a traditional Moscow marathon that was also planned for September 21.
"No decision was taken yet. It is under consideration," he said. “By the way, no 'march of peace' or 'peace' were mentioned in the application. The announced aim was to ‘express a view on violation of human rights and international law’," the official said, adding that the Moscow authorities, under the law, had three days to decide on a planned demonstration route.
