- Story Text: - INTRO: Russian nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky was unusually placid on Wednesday when he used a Russian Independence Day rally to describe himself as a "candidate of compromise" in Sunday's presidential election.
---------------------------------------------------------------- Russians took to the streets of Moscow on Wednesday (June 12) to mark Russian Independence Day (the sixth anniversary of this new national holiday) and at the same time to declare their support for the various candidates who will contest the presidency on Sunday.
Communists gathered near the Lubyanka, the former KGB headquarters, in the city centre. Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov did not join the rally.
Nearby supporters of ultra-nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky gathered to hear their flamboyant candidate speak.
Supporters of President Boris Yeltsin turned out near City Hall, ready to make their way towards Red Square for an evening rally and concert where Yeltsin was due to appear.
