MOSCOW, May 10 (Itar-Tass) — Two riot policemen injured in clashes on Bolotnaya Square on May 6 have been discharged from hospital, while three of their colleagues are still in hospital, the press service of the special purpose center of the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.
Colonel Oleg Tkachuk, the head of the medical department of the special purpose center, told Itar-Tass on Thursday that two out of five policemen taken to a clinical hospital of the Moscow police department had been discharged and would continue treatment as outpatients.
Twenty-seven members of the Moscow special police unit (OMON) were hurt on Bolotnaya Square. Twenty-four of them are undergoing out-patient treatment.
“The condition of riot policemen injured on Bolotnaya Square on May 6 is satisfactory and is relevant to the gravity of injuries they received. They suffer from traumatic brain injuries, concussions, head wounds and other body injuries,” Tkachuk explained.
Demonstrators who gathered for a sanctioned rally on Bolotnaya Square on May 6 demanded that police open the square to avoid jams at the entrance. Some of them tried to break through police cordons. They threw bottles and firers at the OMON. The most active activists put up resistance to the policemen and tried to tear off their helms.
Seven civilians were also hurt at Bolotnaya. One person is still in hospital with light injuries. The other six were sent home shortly upon arrival in hospital, a source at the Moscow Public Health Department told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
