MOSCOW, September 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow’s police terminated an unsanctioned picket in front of the U.S. embassy in the centre of Moscow, a spokesman for the Moscow police department told ITAR-TASS on Sunday.
At about 15:00 Moscow time on Sunday, a group of about 30 people gathered in front of the U.S. embassy in Moscow. They were carrying slogans “Obama, keep your hands off Ukraine,” The United States is a global aggressor,” Poroshenko is working at the bidding of the American authorities,” etc.
“Since this action was not authorized by the executive authorities, police asked its participants to go away and they went away,” the spokesman said.
According to earlier reports, a picket calling on Presidents of Ukraine and the U.S. Pyotr Poroshenko and Barack Obama to stop the bloodshed in Ukraine was organised by the American embassy in Moscow on Sunday. The picket featured about 30 participants in the opposition’s rally - two hours ahead of the march in central Moscow. The picket participants said they had been mislead as organisers of the opposition’s rally had invited them to a Peace March, which turned out to be a Betrayers March.
Moscow mayor’s office issued a permit to the opposition for a march of up to 50,000 participants on September 21. Alexei Mayorov, the head of Moscow’s regional security department, told ITAR-TASS that the application for a permit had it that the march was to express protest against violations of the Russian constitution and norms of international law.
