Several opposition parties are due to hold a rally in Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan) on Sunday, October 6, to protest fraud and irregularities they say took place during the State Council of Tatarstan elections on September 8. Participants plan to gather at the Lenin Palace of Culture in the Aircraft Building District, although organizers did not immediately announce a time.
A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected near the protest site.
Thousands of people have participated in nationwide protests against election fraud and irregularities in recent weeks, resulting in clashes between security forces and protesters and dozens of arrests.
Individuals in Kazan are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
