Yekaterinburg: 4 protesters arrested during anti-corruption rally
The Yekaterinburg police arrested 4 protesters during an anti-corruption rally. The news was reported on social media and by several Ural Region media outlets.
The arrestees were taken into a prisoner transport vehicle at the Truda Square, according to reports.
On March 25, The Sverdlovsk Region Court upheld the Leninsky District Court’s decision not to allow the rally, according to e1.ru. However, the activists still went to the Truda Square. Yet, it was not a rally since they did not have sound-amplifying equipment, according to one of the activists Viktor Barmin.
The police addressed local residents through the web-site of the Main Department of the MIA of the Russian Federation in the Sverdlovsk Region asking them not to participate in unauthorized rallies.
May we remind you that several dozen people were arrested during an anti-corruption rally in the City of Vladivostok today.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
