Action demanding radical reform of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was held today in Moscow at the Triumphal Square.  In place of the event gathered about 200 people, although organizers said 300.  This rally so would go unnoticed if not for provocation "Nashi".  (Этот митинг так бы и остался незамеченным, если бы не провокации "Нашистов".)

Participants unfurled posters and banners which included Russia People's Democratic Union, "Solidarity", FMG. On the boards you can see the slogans: "We need another police!", "The police have been under civilian control!" and many others

When our commissioners raised their banners, several opposition activists attacked them and began to tear
the posters.

This nice lady, gave "the Constitution of Russia" the policemen;   "Take it, it is not a bribe!" ("берите, это не взятка!")  The policeman decided not to take. Apparently, just in case.
