"The Interior Ministry operational headquarters confirms that the peak number of the opposition rally participants on Sakharov Avenue in Moscow is 29,000 people," Interior Ministry spokesman Valery Gribakin told Interfax.

Vladimir Ryzhkov, a co-organizer of the rally, had said earlier from the stage that the rally had gathered 120,000 people.
