MOSCOW, August 21, 21:46 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian opposition said on Thursday it was planning to hold a Peace March in Moscow in September.
Sergei Davidis, a member of the Committee of Protest Actions, said the Committee had made the decision to hold the march on September 21. “It will be a peace march against isolationism and economic policy of the state,” he said.
“The RPR-PARNAS party will take part in the march, and we are inviting other political forces to rally for peace,” Boris Nemtsov, a deputy of the Yaroslavl Regional Duma (parliament), told ITAR-TASS.
He admitted a split in the opposition over Ukraine. “The left and the nationalists may not support us, but we hope that Yabloko, Solidarity and Alexei Navalny’s [Progress] party will take part in the march,” Nemtsov said.
