Red Square

| No Comments

Russian authorities let members of the opposing party into Red Square on Sunday to protest President Elect Vladimir Putin's recent election.

According to the Associated Press, the protestors were handing out white ribbons as a symbol of protest. This move marks a change in the majority party and shows a leniency that has been little seen over the years.

The BBC reports that three protestors have been detained by police. One has been released with a court summons, and the others are expected to be released with a charge of "petty hooliganism" according to police.

Protestors were not able to protest during the recent elections.
