MOSCOW, May 31 (ITAR-TASS) - Twenty-six people were detained on Moscow's Triumfalnaya Square, city police spokesperson Svetlana Serkina told ITAR-TASS.
About 100 people tried to hold an unauthorized action in the city center on Tuesday night. About 100 journalists were covering the event. "Twenty-six people were seized for a breach of public order," Serkina said.
The detainees include a number of leaders of the extra-systemic opposition, among them Eduard Limonov, co-leader of the Solidarity Movement Ilya Yashin and Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov.
The police also seized a number of activists carrying placards and chanting slogans. The action aimed to defend article 31 of the Russian constitution.
