Moscow March

Navalny among dozens detained

More than 50 people including opposition leader Alexei Navalny were detained yesterday as police sought to break up a peaceful Moscow rally against the alleged impunity of law enforcement agencies.

Russian police moved in against the unsanctioned march amid cries of “shame” and “stop police terror.”

At least 57 people were detained amid a heavy police presence, the OVD Info monitor said.

Some of the protesters wore T-shirts in support of Ivan Golunov, an investigative journalist who was last week arrested on allegedly trumped-up drugs charges.
