A rally, held in Moscow's Novopushkinsky Square on Sunday, adopted a resolution urging the authorities to track down and bring to justice the perpetrators of the murder of Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya and of other politicians and journalists.
The resolution was read out by leader of the Russian People's Democratic Union Mikhail Kasyanov. The rally demanded that a fight against corruption be launched, and that the law on combating extremism be repealed as an anti-constitutional law.
The demonstrators also want October 7 to be declared the Day of Civil Dignity commemorating Anna Politkovskaya, killed a year ago.
After the rally, Kasyanov and other participants proceeded by metro to the place where Politkovskaya lived for a flower-laying ceremony.
No breaches of the peace were reported during the rally, Moscow police told Interfax .
