First-ever Russian March held in Pskov

Pskov nationalists have had their first Russian March.

About 100 people marched along the central Rizhsky Avenue to Lenin Square at noon and had a rally under the slogans, "Russian Power to Russia," "The Future Belongs to Us" and "Unity of Three Parts of the Russian People: Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians", an Interfax correspondent reported from the site.

The Russian March adopted a resolution to demand an end to the unlimited support to labor migration in Russia, visas for citizens of South Caucasian and Central Asian countries, fair elections, freedom to political prisoners, restoration of a field for nationality in passports, the nation-building ethnicity status of the Russian people by constitution and some others.

The march was dedicated to the 400th anniversary of the liberation of Moscow from Polish invaders and the Day of the Our Lady of Kazan Icon. The local authorities permitted the action. No incidents happened during it.
