In Russia, an action of Alexei Navalny supporters "Strike of voters" is taking place, there are detentions already. This is reported by Russian media.
During the protests of supporters of Alexei Navalny in Russia, more than 90 people have been detained. This is a summary of the OVD-Info as of 14:00 Moscow time.
In Ufa there are at least 28 detainees. 15 people were detained in Kemerovo, 10 or more - in Tomsk, eight - in Moscow, seven - in St. Petersburg.

In Moscow, police detained Alexei Navalny himself.
The action is declared as All-Russian, and its purpose is to convince voters not to go to the presidential elections in Russia in March. In some cities of the country, the actions of the supporters of Navalny are not coordinated, in particular in Moscow.
We recall that a few days ago, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation dismissed the appeal of Aleksei Navalny against the decision on the legality of the refusal of the Central Election Commission to register him as a candidate for the post of president of the Russian Federation. Earlier, the CEC of the Russian Federation had already been warned that Navalny would not be registered as a candidate because of a criminal record. The politician himself tried to protest this ban.
The presidential election will be held on March 18, 2018.
