Activist arrested at Moscow rally slashes wrists

A spokesman for the People’s Resistance Association, Nikita Zaitsev, who was detained during the July 27 protest, slashed his wrists at the local police station, the Internal Affairs Department-Info reports with reference to doctors.

Zaitsev is now at the Sklifosovsky Institute ICU.

The media outlet suggested that he was sent to the unit of crisis conditions and psychosomatic disorders, as the doctors believed that he had tried to commit suicide.

In a conversation with “MBH Media” doctors said that the activist is now “in the seventh closed building,” but refused to name the diagnosis.

On July 27th , a protest rally was held in the center of Moscow for the admission of independent candidates to the Moscow City Duma elections. During the dispersal of the protesters, law enforcers used batons and stun guns and detained 1,388 people.
