In Volgograd, where Navalny's supporters announced an unsanctioned protest action, four activists were detained on September 9.

Authorities in Rostov-on-Don refused to sanction the protest of Alexei Navalny's supporters scheduled for September 9, but opponents of the pension reform came to Fountain Square, where policemen detained Sergey Grivko, the coordinator of Navalny's local office, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent has reported.
