MOSCOW, September 16 (Itar-Tass) — About twenty people were detained at Moscow’s Chistoprudny Boulevard on Sunday for an attempt to hold an unsanctioned march on traffic area, the press service of the Moscow department of the Russian Interior Ministry reports.
“A group of people tried to enter a road surface on Chistoprudny Boulevard with an aim to hold an unauthorized march. Police detained about 20 people,” the press service went on to say. They will be taken to a police station to face charges of administrative offence.
An opposition rally took place at the Academician Sakharov Avenue on Saturday. It finished at 22:00 Moscow time.
