MOSCOW, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - The recent clashes at the Matveyevsky market in western Moscow, in which a policeman was hurt, was the first such incident at that place, Alexey Pravkin, the acting head of the district department of the Russian Interior Ministry, told a meeting of the Interior Ministry Public Council on Wednesday.
“It was the first time that clashes had occurred at this market. There have never been such conflicts before,” Pravkin said.
A native of Dagestan who was arrested on suspicion of attacking a policeman did not work at that market but had come to visit his wife.
“He was passing by when he saw that his relatives were being detained and stood up for them,” Pravkin emphasized.
