The Moscow city authorities permitted the opposition rally March of Millions on September 15. However, the rally’s organizers were asked to hold it not on Tverskaya Street as they applied for, but to stroll along Frunzenskaya Naberezhanya (Embankment).
Now the Left Front, which organizes the action, should have its say, the Rossiyskaya Gazeta wrote. The authorities motivated their refusal by the fact that on Saturdays Tverskaya Street is full of cars and the ban for motorists’ movement will arouse the indignation of Muscovites. “We do not agree, we will press for holding the rally inside the Garden Ring,” Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov wrote in his Twitter blog.
On Monday the opposition will continue talks with the Moscow city authorities to coordinate the route of the March of Millions, the Novye Izvestiya reported. “We insist that the route should run inside the Garden Ring,” one of the rally’s organizers, Sergei Davidis, said underlining that the march will take place in any case. “People will gather all the same.”
Samara, a city on the Volga River, became one of the first cities, where the local authorities allowed to hold the rally in the centre.
