The police were out in large numbers in dozens of cities and towns across Russia on Sunday as tens of thousands took to the streets to show support for the jailed opposition leader Aleksei Navalny. It was one of the most imposing shows of police force seen in the country’s recent history.
More than 4,000 people, including Navalny’s wife, Yulia Navalnaya, were detained, but many have been released.
In Vladivostok, demonstrators descended onto the ice of a frozen bay, with riot officers in pursuit. In Chelyabinsk, there was footage of riot police officers clubbing protesters with batons. There were reports of stun guns and tear gas being used in St. Petersburg.
The turnout in so many parts of the nation showed that the accumulated anger with President Vladimir Putin remains a potent force. Disappointment over slumping wages is also taking a toll on support for the Putin government.
