Nationalists in Nov. 4 Rally

Ultranationalist groups have filed more than 20 requests with City Hall to hold an annual Russian March rally with up to 5,000 participants on the Nov. 4 Unity Day holiday, Interfax said.

One proposed route passes through Ulitsa Akhmada Kadyrova, named after the late Chechen president. North Caucasus natives are regular targets for ultranationalists.

The organizers will accept any route City Hall authorizes, activist Dmitry Dyomushkin told Interfax. Last year, City Hall sanctioned the march, which attracted about 2,000 people.
