An unauthorized action took place in Vladivostok in support of the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal and residents of the neighboring region. The peak number of participants was about 200 people, according to the Kommersant correspondent. They held a rally in the central square of the city, and then marched in a column along the main street - Svetlanskaya. The police did not interfere with the demonstrators.

      Local authorities occupied almost the entire central square of the city with tents and vans, which were used to sell seaside vegetables during the festival. The monument to the Fighters for Soviet Power in the Far East located here was fenced off for cleaning "from dust and dirt." The demonstrators occupied a free part of the square near the exit from the underpass. At noon, about a hundred people gathered here, and the peak number of participants reached two hundred. Those gathered were holding posters: “Khabarovsk, we are with you! Khabarovsk is a hero city! "," I / We are Furgal ","Trutnev, where did you get billions for mansions?!"," Fair court, fair elections "," We demand fair elections."  A traffic police car drove up to the scene, and the policeman warned the protesters about the illegality of their actions and, threatening to bring them to administrative responsibility, offered to disperse. The audience greeted the words of the police officer with applause and after several speeches, they decided to “go for a walk” along the main street of the city. 

      Many of the passing vehicles honked in support.   During the march, demonstrators chanted slogans in support of Khabarovsk and against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Having made a circle around the city center, the protesters dispersed. There were no arrests during the rally and march.

      The rallies were also attended by residents of Khabarovsk and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The actions in the Far East have continued since July 11, after the governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergei Furgal, was arrested on charges of organizing murders and attempted murders.
