Anti-Putin Protesters Arrested Near U.S. Moscow Embassy

May 16 (Bloomberg) -- About 20 Russian protesters demonstrating against President Vladimir Putin were arrested in central Moscow today, Interfax reported, citing the press office of the Moscow police.

The protesters were detained as they gathered near the U.S. Embassy after their camp at Chistye Prudy station was removed by the police early this morning, Interfax said, adding that one police officer was injured.

Police detained hundreds of people in Moscow on May 6 after clashes between riot officers and thousands of demonstrators rallying against Putin one day before his inauguration as president.
