MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — About 30 people were detained on Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square on Friday night, the city police told reporters.
“About 30 people were detained for holding an unpermitted action on Triumfalnaya Square. They were taken to a police station pending administrative charges,” the police said.
