Moscow authorities agreed to conduct a rally of the “law of Spring” on 9 August in Sokolniki. About it RIA Novosti said the first Deputy head of the Moscow Department of regional security Vasily Oleynik.
The organizers of the rally wanted to hold a rally at the Yauza gates. However, the head of the Department Alexei Mayorov reported on Friday that the government proposed to move it in Sokolniki. The number should not exceed 1000 people.
The organizers filed an application to hold a rally on July 26. The Moscow authorities first proposed to hold a rally at a monument to border Guards of the Fatherland in the Park at the Yauza Gates.
