Activists of ultranationalist organizations they take part in the so-called „Russian March” in the southeastern outskirts of Moscow, on November 4, 2011, marking the National Unity Day. The new holiday was created in 2005 to replace the traditional November 7 celebration of the 1917 Bolshevik rise to power.
