    MOSCOW, March 8 (RIA Novosti) - The Application Committee, set up for proposing Moscow as a candidate for hosting the 30th Olympic Games in 2012, will carry out a unique action called "Moscow, Spring, New Hope."

    During the action 130 volunteers from Moscow higher educational establishments will congratulate on the March 8 Spring Holiday all women that will be in the central streets of the Russian capital - Tverskaya Street and Stary Arbat - between 12pm and 2pm, Moscow time.

    Another 70 young men in special cloaks with the emblem of the Application Committee will hand in flowers and congratulation postcards to all women who will arrive on this day in Moscow by railway or by plane.

    The volunteers will conduct an opinion poll to get to know once again women's attitude to Moscow's plans to host the 2012 Olympics. The results of the poll will be announced on the same day at the end of a gala concert with the participation of pop singers.

    The concert will last from 2:30pm to 4:00pm, Moscow time, on an improvised stage built in the middle of the Stary Arbat street near the Vakhtangov Theater. In case the results of the poll are successful for the Application Committee, 2,012 red-blue-white air balloons will be let out into the air to the accompaniment of the song "Olympic Games, We Are Waiting for You in Moscow."
