The action will take place at 14:00 Moscow time at the monument to Prince Vladimir, near the Borovitskaya metro station. According to Parfenov, he and deputy Valery Rashkin will certainly take part in the event.
“Difficult negotiations were interrupted more than once and resumed again. Finally, under pressure from the public, the authorities were forced to agree to the holding of the action by the communists, subject to adjusting the time and place,” the deputy wrote in his telegram channel.
The website of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation says that “on February 23, in honor of the Day of the Soviet Army and Navy, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation will hold an agreed meeting with the deputies in Moscow and lay wreaths and flowers at the tomb of the unknown soldier.”
