Today Sevastopol residents are planning to hold a meeting to put forward demands for the city "candidates" for the State Duma deputies, Sevastopol News reported.

“In my opinion, it is a hot topic, given the quality of the work of our deputies,” the organizers wrote.

However, the "authorities" of Sevastopol have forbidden holding the rally, explaining that the “high security” facilities and office of Russian President Vladimir Putin are located close to Nakhimov square.

About 500 people are expected to take part in the rally. 

However, the organizers, having not received from the ‘government” a reasonable proposal to change the venue of the meeting, decided not to cancel the event on the bases of Clause 2, Part 1, Article 12 of the Russian Federal Law No. 54-FZ of June 19, 2004 "On Meetings, Rallies, Demonstrations, Processions and Picketing".
