MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - The police have released from custody Orthodox activist Dmitry nicknamed Enteo, who was detained earlier during a picket, which he staged at the election staff of candidate for the post of the Moscow mayor from the RPR-Parnas Party Alexei Navalny.
“It seemed to someone that the declared number of participants in the picket was exceeded, but the authorities dealt with the issue and no claims were made to the organizers of the picket. A protocol (over an administrative offence - Itar-Tass eds) was not filed,” the activist told Itar-Tass.
“The declared number of participants was ten people, but there were also several members from Navalny’s election staff and just by-passers and the police charged them (the organizers - Itar-Tass eds) with a too large number of participants,” a participant in the picket and the head of the Association of Orthodox Experts Kirill Frolov said earlier.
The protest action of Orthodox activists at Navalny’s election staff was authorized by the Moscow authorities. Generally, the picket passed in a calm atmosphere and lasted about an hour.
