MOSCOW, May 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s police detained about 200 opposition activists who tried to stage unauthorized actions in the city on Tuesday. A number of activists were detained more than once throughout the day, a spokesman for the Moscow police department said early on Wednesday.
In the majority of cases police actions were confined only to warnings and calls to stop unsanctioned actions. Activists were taken to police stations only in the event of recurring illegal actions, the spokesman noted.
