At Monday, June 11 Muscovites should refrain from traveling to the city center. The same applies to motorists who venture to the "traffic jam" for hours.

" Oppositionists intend to march on Tverskaya street from Pushkin to Theatre Square in the very rush hour - 4 pm. Despite the fact that the city authorities banned the "dissent" procession, offering limited Novopushkinsky rally in the park, the opposition considers the actions of city officials as illegal and insisted on the march.

According to the deputy. the spokesperson of the Mayor and the Moscow government of Mikhail Solomentsev the city government will not allow the unauthorized conduct "March of Dissent", and in fact the march of a small group of citizens on the street Tverskaya. He explained that taking the decision to allow rally in Novopushkinsky Square, the city authorities were guided by the fact that such activities should not infringe upon the rights of other Moscow residents, including motorists. "It is unrealistic to cover the main streets of the capital only to on them was able to pass a small group of protesters," - said Solomentsev.

He recalled that the city authorities of Moscow and Voronezh already have experience of conducting similar demonstrations. To meet the wishes of the organizers and presenting for such shares the site in the heart of the city, whenever they are faced with provocations and inadequate behavior of the protesters. And therefore raises criticism in his address on a large number of citizens. Therefore, stressed Solomentsev, the capital city administration has decided to reconsider its attitude to these requests and will continue to allocate a share more remote places, where they will not interfere with the normal life of the city. Attempts to hold the organizers of the march of dissenters in any other place other than permitted, the authorities regarded as a violation of federal and municipal law with all the ensuing consequences, says Rossiyskaya Gazeta .
