Russia: Dozens detained at unauthorised rally in Moscow

Russian Federation, Moscow
May 5, 2018 at 13:36 GMT -00:00 · Published

Dozens of participants of an unauthorised rally were detained in Moscow on Saturday.

The footage features riot police officers going into the crowds and taking rally participants to the police vans. Prior to the detentions, the police informed people that the rally they were participating in was not authorised and urged people not to violate the law.

The rally was organised by Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny ahead of the presidential inauguration. City authorities, reportedly, offered Sakhorova Avenue for the rally to take place at, however, Navalny and his supporters decided to organise an unauthorised rally.

Clashes broke out between what appeared to be his supporters and opponents at the rally in Pushkinskaya Square.

According to Moscow city police, up to 1,500 people participated in the unauthorised rally.

Decenas de participantes en una manifestación no autorizada fueron detenidos en Moscú el sábado.

Las imágenes muestran a agentes de la policía antidisturbios cargando contra la multitud y llevando a los participantes a las furgonetas de la policía. Antes de las detenciones, la policía informó a la gente de que la manifestación en la que participaban no estaba autorizada e instó a las personas a no violar la ley.

La manifestación fue organizada por el activista opositor ruso Alexei Navalny antes de la inauguración presidencial. Según los informes, las autoridades de la ciudad ofrecieron un lugar en la avenida Sakhorova para que la manifestación se celebrase, sin embargo, Navalny y sus partidarios decidieron organizar un mitin no autorizado.

Hubo algunos enfrentamientos entre lo que parecían ser sus partidarios y algunos detractores en el evento en la plaza Pushkinskaya.

Según la policía de la ciudad de Moscú, hasta 1.500 personas participaron en la protesta.
