MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. The Russian Interior Ministry will take tougher action than during the unauthorized protests on March 26 in the event of a marked increase in provocative actions in the country, Russian Deputy Interior Minister, Igor Zubov, told TASS.
According to Zubov, the range of the ministry’s available means is much wider than those used on Sunday. "If there is an increase in provocative actions in the future, the available arsenal, which we can use, is much wider," Zubov said.
The police involved in providing law and order in the center of Moscow on March 26 received instructions to be maximally loyal, minimize detentions and refrain from the use of force, Zubov said.
"I can say that the instruction given to our personnel was to be maximally loyal, prevent provocations, minimize detentions and refrain from the use of force," the deputy interior minister said.
This instruction was given before the rally, he added.
According to the Moscow authorities, more than 600 people were detained in the unauthorized rally in the center of Moscow on Sunday.
