Anti-Putin protests sweep Moscow as opposition leader Alexei Navalny detained at home

12 Jun

The historical reenactments paused as riot police lines split up groups of protestors and small squads of police roamed around, arresting people in the crowd.

Protestors chanted slogans including “Putin is a thief!”, “Down with the tsar!”, and “1,2,3, Putin get out!”

Many demonstrators carried blow-up rubber ducks, which have become the symbol of corruption associated with Dmitry Medvedev after a video report by Mr Navalny alleged that the prime minister’s estate includes a duck house in the middle of a pond.
