A protest march is planned in Moscow on Wednesday, August 15, despite not obtaining approval from the Moscow government. Demonstrators are expected to meet at 18:30 (local time) in Novopushkinsky Square before marching to the Supreme Court building on Povarskaya Street. The event, dubbed the "Mothers' March," has been organized by the mothers of two girls who were arrested in March and accused of being members of an extremist group. Moscow's mayor has called the protest a threat to public safety. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are possible near demonstration sites.
Individuals in Moscow are advised to avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
