Over 40 participants of unsanctioned rally detained in Moscow center
There are several minors among the persons detained. The detainees have been escorted to paddy wagons.
The number of participants of the unsanctioned rally detained by the police in the center of Moscow has exceeded 40 people. This is reported by Interfax citing a source in the law enforcement bodies.
According to the Interfax source, the overwhelming majority of detainees are representatives of nationalist organizations and groups.
The MIA has not yet commented on the information.
Meanwhile, a representative of Novaya Oppozitsiya ('New Opposition') Roman Kovalev has reported on 40 detainees on Triumfalnaya Square. According to him, they are currently in paddy wagons at the place of detention.
OMON riot police units and the National Guard were drawn to the city center before noon. Metal fences were installed near the Historical Museum and the Alexander Garden in Moscow.
Let us recall that April 1, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation initiated a criminal case into inciting riots.
The MIA warned the participants about possible consequences for taking part in the illegal event.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
