Two Protest Rallies to Take Place in Spring

Members of the Russian Opposition Coordination Council have announced plans to hold two mass rallies in April and May.

      The first rally is expected to take place on April 6 on Pushkin Square and the second will be held under the slogan “For Freedom!” on May 6 on Bolotnaya Square.

      The second rally will also mark one year since the protest, which sparked clashes between the opposition and police ahead of President Vladimir Putin’s inauguration. Afterwards, over a dozen of defendants faced allegations ranging from inciting mass unrest to using violent force against law enforcement officials.

      The Coordination Council, which was formed in October 2012 and convenes once a month, also plans to hold so-called Saturday "airings" with white ribbons and other opposition symbols, in downtown Moscow.
