MOSCOW, May 1. /TASS/. The most massive May Day demonstration, organized by the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FITUR) and the Moscow Federation of Trade Unions, was held on Moscow’s Red Square. According to organizers, more than 140,000 people took part in the rally. This figure was also confirmed by the city police.
On May 1, the rallies of the trade unions were expected to be held in more than 600 cities and regional centers across Russia drawing 2.5 million people, the FITUR said.
Around 2,500 people participated in the May Day rally of the Russian Communist Party in downtown Moscow on Friday, the city police press service has said.
The rally called for solidarity against the attempts to falsify the history and revive fascism, and also to support the people of the war-torn Donbas in eastern Ukraine. The participants marched from Kaluzhskaya Square to Teatralnaya Square.
The leader of the party, Gennady Zuganov, said Russophobia and anti-Semitism were among the key threats for modern Russia. He also added that President Petro Poroshenko’s "time is over."
Another 3,000 people attended the traditional rally of the far-right Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) on Friday, the city police said.
LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky also urged Russians to show "true solidarity" and focused on the key events of the past years, including in neighbouring Ukraine.
