"During the event, a conflict occurred between the protesters, in which the police intervened and immediately stopped it. The law enforcers urged the protesters not to create conflict situations," the statement says.

Earlier, on Saturday, January 23, rallies began in various cities of Russia in support of the arrested opposition leader Alexei Navalny, as well as other political prisoners.

As we reported, Navalny returned to Russia on January 17. Officers of the search department of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia detained him right after his plane landed in Moscow.

Navalny, who is President Vladimir Putin’s most prominent and determined foe, had spent the previous five months in Germany recovering from a nerve agent attack that he blamed on the Kremlin. Navalny decided to leave Berlin of his own free will and wasn’t under any apparent pressure to leave Germany.

A number of countries have already condemned Russia's actions and called for additional sanctions against the country.
