In Rostov-on-Don, an action of Alexei Navalny's supporters and members of the "Open Russia" is being held under monitoring of law enforcers.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the city administration refused Alexei Navalny's supporters in sanctioning for June 12 a march in the city centre and offered places on the outskirts.

In Makhachkala, the rally has not been sanctioned, but its organizer Marat Ismailov intends to hold the rally without the sanction from the authorities.

At 11:00 a.m. Moscow time, the action began in Dortmund City Park, far from the city centre. According to the organizers, at least 700 people took part in the action.

The whole territory of the Dortmund City Park was cordoned off. More than 10 policemen are watching the protesters.
