The incident took place on May 13.
Yekaterinburg police are looking for athletes who attacked citizens and law enforcement officers during the protests in defense of the park. The incident took place on May 13.
First, the athlete sprayed gas in the direction of the activists. After that, the protesters appealed to the police. The man shoved one of the law enforcers who approached him. It is reported that the incident was videotaped, but the police have seized the recording.
To recall, the protests in defense of the Yekaterinburg Theater Square, on the site of which local entrepreneurs are planning to build a church, and, as some sources report, build up the area with residential complexes, have been going on since May 13. During the protests, more than a hundred Sverdlovsk residents were detained by the police.
