ST. PETERSBURG, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Police have detained 34 participants in an unauthorized Russian March action near the Oktyabrsky concert hall in St. Petersburg, a spokesman for the St. Petersburg police department told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
According to the spokesman, the detained will brought to administrative liability for violating public order during mass actions. The spokesman however refused to say exactly how many people had been detained in the city on Sunday, including those who took part in a march along the central Nevsky Avenue.
Despite arrests, protesters continued their march along the Nevsky Avenue pavements chanting the slogans “Forward, Russians,” “Glory to Russia,” “Russian Authorities to Russia.” It is not easy to say how many people are taking part in the march, since they are mingled in the crowd of occasional passersby.
The St. Petersburg authorities refused to allow nationalists to hold an action in the city, after they rejected the Polyustrovsky Park as a venue for their rally. After that, nationalists said they would hold an action in any case, even without a permission.
