More than 800 detained in Russian Federation protests

Hundreds arrested as Russians protest pension reform - media

Police on September 9 detained 839 people at the election-day protests, which were held in dozens of cities and towns across Russian Federation, according to OVD-Info. "We also require advertisers to act in accordance with the local law and our advertising policies", Google said.

"For the first time in history, the company has satisfied the illegal demands of Russian authorities and has taken down from YouTube the paid ads promoting the rally against pensions reform", said Leonid Volkov, a close partner of the opposition leader, on the social media.

Despite the nature of the protest, many of those who took part were young.

The Russian news portal OVD-Info, which tracks the arrest of protesters, said more than 830 demonstrators were detained on September 9 at protests in 33 towns and cities across Russia.

Government plans to raise the state pension age to 60 for women and 65 for men, from the current 55 and 60, have also seen Putin's approval ratings take a major hit.

Almost 300 protesters were detained and some beaten with batons, the rights monitoring group OVD-info says.

The issue has galvanized citizens and initially hurt the popularity of President Vladimir Putin, who in August sought to quell the discontent by suggesting amendments to dilute the proposal.

In Moscow, where the authorities had rejected an application from Mr. Navalny's supporters to protest, around 2,000 people gathered in the central Pushkin Square, the authorities and Reuters reporters estimated.

Mr Navalny, Russia's most prominent opposition leader, planned to lead a protest in Moscow yesterday, but last month a court sentenced him to 30 days in prison for breaking protest laws.

It said 129 were held in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg, 60 in the southwestern city of Krasnodar, and 48 in Perm in the Ural Mountains. Riot police ordered them to disperse or face prosecution.

The protest comes as Russians vote to elect governors, local lawmakers and other officials.

Kremlin ally, Sergei Sobyanin has been re-elected as Moscow's mayor, according to results released by Moscow election commission.

The results had some "rough edges" and they will be dealt with, Putin said during a State Council meeting on Monday in Vladivostok. In Yakutsk's mayoral contest, Sardana Avksentyeva, of the Party for the Renaissance of Russia, beat Aleksandr Savinov, of the pro-Putin United Russia.

Their compliance with the request also came after Russian Federation warned the company last week that "meddling" in the Sunday elections could result in court action, according to AFP.
