Police detained 47 people for organisation of an unauthorized march in Stavropol on Tuesday evening
Police detained 47 people for organisation of an unauthorized march in Stavropol on Tuesday evening. The march began after a rally held in the city center demanding "to crack down on crime and conduct an unbiased and open investigation into the murder of students - Dmitry Blokhin and Pavel Chadin." Around a thousand people took part in the rally. After the rally a group numbering some 150- 200 young people moved to the city center in an unauthorized march. The unauthorized act paralyzed traffic in the city and resulted in incidents of violation of public order. Forty-six people detained have been released after an inquest, the Interior Department of the Stavropol region told Tass. A criminal case has been opened against one of the protesters, who defied police orders and called for revenge for the murdered students, on charges of inciting feud and infringing on human dignity. The city administration agreed to heed to the protesters' demands and declared that it would inform the population about the process of the investigation on television, radio and in printed media. The situation in Stavropol has been fully normalized by Wednesday and public transport resumed normal work. Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev and the plenipotentiary envoy of the Russian president to the Southern Federal District are expected to arrive in Stavropol on Wednesday afternoon to meet senior regional security officials.
