MOSCOW, May 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Four policemen were hurt in the March of Millions in Moscow on Sunday, the city police department told Itar-Tass.
“Doctors reported injuries of four police officers. They have bruises and cut wounds,” it said.
“Provocateurs tossed stones and water bottles at the police and reporters. They were extremely aggressive,” the police said.
Opposition leaders Sergei Udaltsov, Boris Nemtsov and Alexei Navalny have been detained for organizing provocations and appeals for the breach of public order. In all, about 200 people are detained.
Criminal charges may be brought against the participants in a sit-in strike near Bolotnaya Square, the police said.
“A police task force is recording appeals for the breach of public order for possible opening of a criminal case,” the source said.
The rally organizers joined by a number of supporters refused to go to Bolotnaya Square, the source said. “They stopped on a traffic way near the Udarnik Movie Theater and some sat on the ground thus blocking the march,” he said.
“Despite the repeated police appeals for continuing the movement to the rally venue they refused to go, thus creating a threat of jostling and injuries,” the source said.
In the opinion of human rights defenders, the March of Millions organizers thwarted the rally deliberately.
