Duma Vote Protests Moved to Bolotnaya Ploshchad

This Saturday's protest in Moscow against alleged vote rigging during Duma elections last Sunday will take place on Bolotnaya Ploshchad, not Ploshchad Revolutsii, as originally planned, organizers said.

City Hall asked organizers to move to a bigger venue after some 30,000 people signed up for the event on Facebook. The rally will take place between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Organizers said police will be redirecting protesters to the new location from Ploshchad Revolutsii.

Bolotnaya Ploshchad is located across the Moscow River from the Kremlin, halfway between the Kropotkinskaya, Borovitskaya and Tretyakovskaya metro stations.
