MOSCOW, September 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Academician Sakharov avenue in the centre of Moscow reopened to traffic after the end of an opposition rally on Saturday, the press service of the Moscow Interior Ministry department told Itar-Tass.
An opposition rally took place at the Academician Sakharov Avenue on Saturday. It finished at 22:00 Moscow time. All nearby streets were closed to traffic for the time of the action.
The traffic has been reopened. Vehicles are cleaning the territory from litter and garbage, a police source said.
The rally passed without incidents. Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov was detained after the rally for an attempt to organize an unsanctioned march in the direction of Chistoprudny Boulevard.
The opposition leader told Itar-Tass by telephone that he didn’t know why he had been detained.
“I was leaving the square and I don’t understand why I was detained,” Udaltsov said.
