September 29, Russian oppositions are planning to protest in Moscow. It should become the first big mass event agreed upon with the authorities after the general elections three weeks ago. Radio Liberty reported that. 

Oppositions urge to protest against political repressions and demand the government to stop the campaign of raids and arrests directed against the opponents. 

Besides, demonstrators require to release imprisoned and detained people arrested according to the so-called "Moscow case" (a series of criminal matters, which were opened against protesters during the demonstrations in July-August 2019).

As it was reported earlier, Ukraine's foreign ministry had condemned the massive detention of protesters during the rally that took place in Moscow on July 27.

"Barbaric beating of its own citizens, multiple arrests and detentions, the use of artificial and discriminative pre-election filters supposed to let only the favorable candidates run during the election shows Russian government's failure to provide the integrity of democratic expression of will; it shows its fear of the real political competitiveness," reads the statement.
