MOSCOW, May 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Coordinator of the opposition Left Front Sergei Udaltsov was detained in the small hours on Wednesday near Patriarshiye Prudy ponds in downtown Moscow, where opposition activists are trying to hold the so-called protest “open-ended public gathering.”
The police cordoned off the area and people began to go away.
Prior to that, opposition activists tried to stage a similar action in Arbat Street. Still earlier, they gathered in Tverskoi Boulevard near the building of Itar-Tass. The police detained several people, including blogger Alexei Navalny, popular television anchor Xenia Sobchak, and member of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Dmitry Gudkov, who were taken to police stations.
On Tuesday, participants in the “public gatherings” staged actions near the Heroes of Plevna Monument, in Chistopridny Boulevard, and on Pushkinskaya Square. The police stopped all these actions.
According to a spokesman of the Moscow police department, more than 30 people were detained on charges of administrative offence. A number of people were detained more than once during the day.
