Support The Moscow Times!

About 25 Held at 31st Rally

Writer and opposition firebrand Eduard Limonov and about 25 others were detained at an unsanctioned protest on Triumfalnaya Ploshchad on Tuesday.

Opposition activists sat on the asphalt and shouted anti-government slogans until police dragged them by their hands and feet into waiting police vehicles, Interfax reported. One woman held a sign that said, "Putin, drink poison or else we'll treat you to lead."

Limonov, leader of the Other Russia movement, was detained shortly after the rally began at 6 p.m.


… 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.
