BARNAUL, December 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Several people were detained during an unauthorized rally under the slogan “For Fair Elections!”, which passed on the Sovetov Square in Barnaul. The rally organizers reported that the former deputy of the city legislature Sergei Mamayev and another two protesters were detained.
The Altai territorial police did not confirm the report about the detention to Itar-Tass, noting that this report is being specified.
The protest organizers claimed that from 200 to 300 people were participating in the protest action. Official reports were not made yet. People, who gathered on the Sovetov Square in Barnaul, were crying out the slogans, “For election rerun!” “We are not banderlogs!” Yabloko activists were seen with the party flags at the demonstration. Since the beginning of the unauthorized rally the police urged people to go home. However, the protesters ignored the demands of the authorities. People began to go away only after the police detained several people. About 20 protesters are staying in the square.
