MOSCOW, February 6 – RIA Novosti. The Moscow Public Oversight Commission handed over books, medicines and hygiene products to the temporary detention center for foreign citizens in Sakharovo, where those arrested after participating in uncoordinated actions in the capital are being held, POC member Valeria Loskutova told RIA Novosti.
“I organized a big program, which included books, several boxes of medicines, hygiene products. Many thanks to friendly foundations and institutions! It turned out quite voluminously, they brought all this in three cars,” she said.
According to her, at present there is enough in the institution.
Uncoordinated protests took place on January 23 in different cities of Russia and continued on February 31 and February 2, despite numerous warnings from the authorities, including about the danger of contracting coronavirus. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov called the organizers of the uncoordinated actions provocateurs. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, everyone has the right to express an opinion, but “anything that goes beyond the law is not just counterproductive, but dangerous.”
