100 Nationalists Rally

About 100 young men staged an improvised nationalist rally in Izmailovsky Park in eastern Moscow on Wednesday, a law enforcement source told Interfax, adding that riot police briefly detained about 50 of them.

The rally was dubbed "Russians without alcohol and for healthy lifestyle" and saw the participants taking an organized run through the park, only to be nabbed by police at the exit, the source said.

An unidentified detainee told Interfax that participants were only released after they signed police protocols saying they were shouting profanities in a public place, which amounts to charges of minor hooliganism. No official comment about the report was available.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
