Go to the protesters in Yekaterinburg, which lasted 40 minutes, four times approached the police in a different composition and required to show approval. Notice of the action was sent to the administration of the mail notification, and inspection have been forced to settle for an acquaintance with the mail dispatch receipts.Despite the non-obviousness of the situation, the police, well-trained local human rights activists, decided not to detain anyone.
The action took place during the Days of united action in support of the arrested anarchists Belarus.
Photos will be published shortly.
