Dmitry Dyomushkin and other organizers of the so-called Russian March, to be held in southeastern Moscow on November 4, have been warned to abide by the law.

Dmitry Dyomushkin and other organizers of the so-called Russian March, to be held in southeastern Moscow on November 4, have been warned to abide by the law.

"In order to prevent abuses of the law, the prosecutor's office of Moscow's Southeastern Administrative District has issued a warning to Dyomushkin," the Prosecutor General's Office said on its website.

"Dyomushkin and activists of the Russian National Union political party had been planning to mobilize 30,000 participants for a march and rally, but were officially allowed to bring together 15,000," it said.

Regional Security Department head Alexei Mayorov earlier told Interfax that the Russian March had been authorized with 15 participants.

Dyomushkin, who is leader of the Russkie organization, told Interfax that activists of right-wing groups and their sympathizers are expected to march along Pererva Street on November 4 and then gather for a rally and a rock concert in Lyublino.
