MOSCOW, October 21 (Itar-Tass) - The head of Russia's presidential Council for Human Rights, Mikhail Fedotov, believes the law on rallies should be corrected after the events in southern Moscow's Buryulyovo, where local residents gathered for a spontaneous protest meeting on October 13 after a young man was stabbed to death in their district. .
People in Biryulyovo held a people’s gathering. The regulations stipulate that such a gathering may be held in settlements of fewer than 100 people. Biryulyovo residents, in accordance with the present law, must submit an application two weeks before, Fedotov explained to reporters. The present law on rallies must be corrected, he believes.
Another member of the human rights council, Andrei Babushkin, believes the events did not amount to mass disorder. It is "just" to judge them as "hooliganism with violence", he said, noting that assessment of police action was positive.
Azerbaijani national Orkhan Zeinalov, suspected of the murder, was detained in the city of Kolomna near Moscow on October 15. He has been charged with hooliganism-motivated murder.
