Members of the Russian Opposition Coordination Council have announced their decision to hold two mass rallies in April and May.

This was announced by council member Alexei Navalny.

The first rally is scheduled for April 6 on Pushkin Square and the second will be held May 6 under the slogan “For Freedom!” on Bolotnaya Square to mark one year since the protest that sparked clashes between the opposition and police ahead of President Vladimir Putin’s inauguration.

Those events have led to a case, in which more than a dozen defendants face charges ranging from inciting mass unrest to using violent force against law enforcement officials.
