“They didn’t exactly ban the rally, but they informed us that since the emergency state is still in force, it is impossible to organize such an event”, - she said.

“Events that have been planned much earlier will still be held, the City Council explained. Thus, our rally falls in the category of unplanned events”, - Popova explained.
