International Committee of the protection of freedom and civil society expresses its extreme concern that took place today, the facts of cruel persecution of the participants and organizers of the “March of Dissent” in Moscow by Russian law enforcement.
Today’s events in Moscow suggest that the Russian authorities any real opposition activity of Russian citizens is unacceptable. It is obvious that the regime has not the slightest respect for universally recognized throughout the world and the constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms of Russian citizens. This situation, in our view, poses a big question the sincerity of the Russian government’s repeated statements about his commitment to the ideas and principles of democracy.
International Committee for the Protection of freedom and civil society demands the immediate release from custody was arrested today in Moscow during the “March of Dissent” prominent Russian opposition activist Garry Kasparov and the immediate cessation of any reprisals against the rest of the participants and organizers of the event.
