Russian police cracked down on anti-Putin protests

Anti-Kremlin protests have been going on for three months in the city of Khabarovsk, 300,000 miles east of Moscow. Locals were outraged by President Vladimir Putin’s decision to detain popular local governor Sergei Ferguson in a case over his denial of murder charges.

Video footage on social media showed a woman screaming as Cops pulled protesters, “What country do you live in?”

Proponents of Fergal say he is being targeted because he defeated a pro-Putin United Russia party candidate in 2018. The Kremlin says there are serious allegations to be made against Furgal.

Opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who is recovering in Germany after being reportedly attacked using a nerve agent, criticized Russian police in a tweet.

“Officials in Russia are just cynical,” Navalny wrote.

“When half a dozen people took to the streets, they hid like cockroaches. They waited for three months, the number of people increased less, they became more courageous, and then they went out and started beating people for no reason, ”he said.
