On 27 July 2019 there were no riots in Moscow, but there were unlawful mass detentions and assaults on demonstrators by law enforcement officers
Memorial Human Rights Centre, in accordance with international guidelines defining the term ‘political prisoner,’ considers Danil Beglets, Aidar Gubaidulin, Egor Zhukov, Kirill Zhukov, Evgeny Kovalenko, Aleksei Minyailo, Ivan Podkopaev, Samariddin Radzhabov and Sergei Fomin to be political prisoners. We demand their immediate release and that those guilty of their unlawful prosecution be held to account in the courts. We also demand the prosecution of those guilty of the violent dispersal of peaceful protests held by those critical of the authorities in Moscow and other Russian regions.
