Russian Police Arrest 150 at Two Protest Rallies, Interfax Says

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Russian police arrested more than 100 protesters at an anti-government rally in St. Petersburg and 54 at one in Moscow, Interfax reported.

The St. Petersburg charges included taking part in unsanctioned protests and violating traffic rules, Interfax said, citing police officials. Among those detained were Eduard Limonov and Konstantin Kosyakin, leaders of anti-government organizations, according to the news agency.

Opposition supporters gather across the country on the last day of every month that has 31 days to protest against what they call the government’s violation of Article 31 of the Russian constitution, which guarantees the freedom of peaceful assembly.
