MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Moscow’s police have detained three young men who were throwing flares and leaflets demanding withdrawal of U.S. bases from Europe at the Moscow residence of the U.S. ambassador, a source in the law enforcement agencies told TASS on Tuesday.

"Three young men were detained for an unauthorized action in central Moscow," the spokesman said.

According to the source, the young men staged their action near the U.S. residence in Moscow’s Spaso House. They sprayed leaflets and threw burning flares at the building. One of the three handcuffed himself to the fence.

The three may face administrative offence cases on charges of holding an unauthorized rally and disobeying police.
