More Arrests in Nizhny Novgorod

Today’s Dissenters’ March in Nizhny Novgorod resulted in a dozen arrests. This was a relatively small event, organized to show that people would not be intimidated by the police brutality against the last rally in the Russian city, which is located 400 km to the east of Moscow. At that event on March 24, tens of thousands of special forces (OMON) were used to subdue a few thousand peaceful protestors.
