MOSCOW, March 31 (Itar-Tass) —— One policeman was injured during an unauthorised opposition rally in Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square on Saturday, March 31.
“One of the opposition members who participated in the unlawful event lit a flare and tossed it towards the police this evening,” the press service of the city police department said.
As a result, one policeman got face burns and his uniform damaged.
“The policeman has been taken to hospital for medical attention. The young man who committed unlawful actions recorded in a video was detained and taken to a police station for proceedings in accordance with the law,” the press service said.
He may face criminal charges.
Some 30 people, including writer Eduard Limonov, were detained at Triumfalnaya Square.
Earlier in the day, Moscow police detained three persons at an opposition rally in another central square. About 50 people, journalists and bloggers gathered in Pushkin Square, the police department said.
“Three persons tried to unroll their posters and organize an unauthorised event despite police warnings. They were detained and taken to a police station for further administrative proceedings under law,” the police department said.
“No other incidents were registered,” it added.
