An anti-war procession in Moscow organized by the opposition is coming to an end.

The marchers have reached their final point, Sakharov Avenue, an Interfax correspondent reported. The reporter said police were urging procession participants them to head for the subway and that some of the marchers were rolling up their flags and leaving while others were lingering on.

No serious incidents have been recorded during the march, but at different points along its route groups of people were detected who were protesting the procession and hurling tomatoes, eggs and shoes at marchers. Some of the protesters were holding banners with "For Novorossia" inscriptions and flags of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic.

There were verbal wrangles between marchers and those who were against them, but the organizers and police were able to prevent any serious physical clashes.
