Activist Rusova complains about provocation during her picket

The activist Sofia Rusova has left the police station in Moscow, where she was delivered after the picket. According to her story, she wrote an application about the damage to her personal property during the picket.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today Sofia Rusova, a board member of the “EcoWatch”, was detained after picketing against the construction of ski resorts in the territory of the Caucasian Reserve.

According to Ms Rusova, a journalist from Yekaterinburg Maxim Rumyantsev happened to be at the scene of the incident. "A few minutes later, two men came out of the foyer of the Congress Hall; one of them grabbed a poster from me, and the other – from Atsamaz Khadikov," she noted.

The words of Rusova that she was going to the police station "were treated as her detention by policemen," said Andrei Rudomakha, head of the "EcoWatch".
