Opposition Plans to Hold a

Leftist leader Sergei Udaltsov has called people to take part in the new opposition rally, called "march of millions” in Moscow on May 5. That is two days earlier than inauguration of president-elect Vladimir Putin, whose victory is called unfair in the opposition's opinion.

      The new protest will be follow-up to a number of anti-Putin rallies that took place in the capital between December and March. Most of these meetings attracted tens of thousands, but the opposition leaders say it is not enough.

      “If the authorities have ignored a rally of a hundred thousand, we need to bring out more,” Udaltsov said. For his million rally he promises to urge residents of regions around Moscow to join.

       The main rally's demand is to repeat presidential and parliamentary elections, trying to make them as fair and clean as possible. 

      Neither Moscow City Hall nor opposition leaders have commented on the proposal.
