Opposition Rally Against Repressions is Held in Moscow Today

Protest action "For Russia and against arbitrariness and repressions” is timed to the 5th anniversary of events in Bolotnaya Square in the heart of Moscow.



On May 6, 2012 the police broke up a demonstration in Bolotnaya Square, detained several dozens of opposition activists and all of them were condemned under articles on violence towards police officers. Lots of them were given real prison terms. 



Civic activists, municipal deputies and representatives of various parties are taking part in the agreed rally. About 2,8 thousand people have gathered in the Sakharov Avenue today. According to organizers, the main motive of the action is summing up the results of five years since the events in Bolotnaya Square on May 6, 2012.


So far none of the rally participants has been detained. Instead, the police has turned off banners against Putin, war, repressions and Kadyrov from the stage background.
