Police have warned schoolchildren and students to stay away from possible unlawful actions on November 4
Police have warned schoolchildren and students to stay away from possible unlawful actions on November 4, following reports that some youth movements intend to go ahead with actions regardless. "Police mostly advise schoolchildren and students of Moscow and Moscow region. Juvenile crime inspectors have been frequenting schools to talk with children and alert them to possible consequences and the responsibility for participation in illegal marches," a police official told Itar-Tass. "Representatives of a number of organizations have put up hundreds of notices around the city, inviting to take part in the so-called Russian March. This information may be wrongly interpreted by young people, and the task of police is to warn them against reckless actions," the official said. Simultaneously, police work with participants in illegal youth groups on file. The Interior Ministry said there are 140 extremist youth groups in the country numbering 6,000. These groups have become more aggressive and organized, while some of them are under criminal influence. "We don't rule out that activists of these organization will attempt to hold unsanctioned actions on November 4, or stage fights or disturbances," the police official said. After the official ban of the so-called Russian March, city authorities and political officials have repeatedly stated that they will take all measures to prevent unlawful actions on that day. City police chief Vladimir Pronin pledged that law-enforcement personnel will "make all efforts, and use all knowledge and technical opportunities to ensure the public order and the safety of citizens." "All police have been instructed to be polite and civil to citizens, but react in a tough way to any anti-public manifestations," he underlined. City police will assign 6,500 personnel to keep law and order. After such statements, the organizers of the march decided to hold it in the subway, where they believe it will be difficult for police to break up a rally. But subway chief Dmitry Gayev said earlier on Thursday there will be no Russian March in the Moscow subway on November 4. "The subway regulations prohibit creating obstacles to passenger flows on stations and in passes. If someone interferes with passengers' movement, the appropriate measures will be taken against him, and he'll be immediately escorted out in the street," Gayev said. Earlier this week, Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov banned the so-called Russian March that nationalistic organizations hoped to hold on downtown streets November 4, which is National Unity Day in this country.
