Russian police detain hundreds of protesters
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:09:19 AM »


Anti-corruption protests have been held across dozens of cities in Russia, leading to many arrests. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny was detained as he walked with supporters in Moscow.

Thousands of people across Russia protested corruption on Sunday, leading to scores of arrests including that of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
An anti-corruption campaigner who plans to challenge President Vladimir Putin in next year's presidential elections, Navalny, was detained by police as he walked along central Moscow's Tverskaya Street with supporters. State news agency Tass cited Moscow police as saying there were at least 500 other arrests.

The protests have been judged the largest in six years and come a year before Putin's attempt to win a fourth term in office. Shortly before he was arrested, Navalny said "I'm happy that so many people came out (onto the streets) from the east (of the country) to Moscow."
The White House issued a statement condemning the mass arrests, saying the arrests represented "an affront to core democratic values."
