Revelers celebrating Victory Day will be unable to buy drinks in glass bottles or park their cars in the city center on May 9, according to a report by Interfax.

For the day, shops located along Nevsky Prospekt and the surrounding streets have been prohibited from selling any drinks in glass containers. Parked cars will also be removed from the central streets before the holiday begins.

“The Department of Consumer Affairs has ordered shops not to sell takeaway drinks in glass containers along Nevsky Prospekt or within 500 meters of the city’s main thoroughfare,” a representative of the Central District Administration told Interfax on Wednesday.

The regional traffic police have announced that motor vehicle will be banned along the entirety of Nevsky Prospekt on Friday from 3.45 p.m. to 6.20 p.m. Earlier in the day, Nevsky Prospekt will be closed between Sadovaya Ulitsa to Admiralteisky Prospekt from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Also from 3.45 pm to 6.20 pm, a section of Ligovsky Prospekt near Nevsky and all of Grechesky Prospekt, Ploschad Vosstanya, Ulitsa Zhikovskogo, Ulitsa Radischeva, 2nd Sovetskaya and Dvortsovy Proezd will be closed.

Police have warned drivers that cars parked on these streets will be towed starting late this evening.
