Yesterday’s protest actions in Russia pose neither a threat for the current administration, nor a danger to public safety. Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of Russian leader Vladimir Putin said that as quoted by Interfax news agency.

‘Well, holding such events does not pose any threat for anyone, as long as the events are approved by the authorities. People naturally take sides, positions, being parts of the civil society. What is dangerous is an action meant to provoke people. Now that’s actually dangerous. Yesterday in Moscow, when thousands of people marked the Day of Russia, the group of provocateurs acted dangerously. The law enforcers did everything to preserve public order,’ Peskov said.

On June 12, Moscow and dozens of other Russian cities hosted protest actions against corruption across the country. Hundreds of activists, including opposition politician Alexey Navalny were detained.
