All Detained Protestors Released

All 60 demonstrators detained by police on Saturday in central Moscow were released, a police source said.

Some 200 people met on Triumfalnaya Square who “made an attempt to hold an unauthorized event,” the ministry press service said. Police detained about 60 demonstrators among who was the leader of the Other Russia movement Eduard Limonov.

“All the detained activists were released after police had compiled a report of administrative offense,” the spokesmen said.

A number of activists and Limonov were released late Saturday. The opposition leader was also obliged to attend court hearings on April 9.

Civic protesters hold traditional campaigns in support of Article 31 of the Russian Constitution, which guarantees freedom of assembly, on the 31st of every month with 31 days
