Arrests at Day of Wrath

Some 250 protesters attended an opposition Day of Wrath rally on Moscow's Teatralnaya Ploshchad on Sunday, which ended with several activists arrested, Interfax said.

The event was sanctioned, but some participants, including Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov, were detained for trying to stage a march after it, the report said.

Udaltsov said about 20 people were briefly detained, while city police said there were about seven arrests. The figures could not be immediately reconciled.

… 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.
