In the capital of the Russian Federation, they decided to abandon the traditional annual parade on May 1.
The reason was the alleged “increased level of terrorist danger” in Moscow, TASS reports.
“There will be no marches and rallies in the capital, but a solemn meeting is planned, in which trade union activists, trade union leaders and some representatives of social partners will be invited,” said the deputy head of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia Oleksandr Shershukov.
The main forms of May 1 this year are meetings in labor collectives, meetings of heads of regions with trade unionists, as well as meetings of tripartite commissions.
“Due to the fact that now the level of terrorist danger is higher, even in those regions that are far from the places of special military operations (the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine ‒ Gazeta.ua). And what is needed in other forms is at least to hold this holiday, in our opinion,” he added.
In Crimea, occupied by Russia, “for security reasons” this year there will be no parade on May 9. Russian authorities in the regions bordering Ukraine as well cancels May parades and demonstrations. In the Belgorod and Kursk regions of the Russian Federation, they decided not to carry out any measures so as not to “provoke the enemy” with the accumulation of troops and equipment.
