Moscow protesters get differential treatment

According to some reports, the Moscow police have detained about 400 participants of today’s rally in support of Meduza journalist Ivan Golunov. Over 1,200 people came to the march.

The city authorities did not authorize the rally. According to Meduza reports, the police beat the protesters and used water cannons. Independent journalists, activists and politicians, including Alexei Navalny, are among the detainees.

When the marchers started to move along Chistye Prudy, the police officers used speaking trumpets and called on them to leave. Then the security forces began to surround the protesters.

Based on the video filmed at the march, they all received differential treatment.
