"The aim was to express solidarity with a large number of political prisoners, disagreement with the practice of politically-motivated persecutions and support of each other in the hope that this will stop. The picket is dated to the start of mass repressions – the events of May 6, 2012, in Bolotnaya Square," said Nikolai Kladovoy, the organizer of the picket.

Let us remind you that today at the above picket, Sergey Rulyov, a blogger and a correspondent of the "Slavic News" edition, was detained. He was accused of violating the public order and fined by 500 roubles.
