More than 300 detained in Moscow for protesting, including opposition figure

More than 300 people were detained in Moscow for attending a protest to demand free elections, including prominent activist Lyubov Sobol. Authorities warned the demonstration was illegal and removed Sobol from a taxi, bundled her into a van minutes before the start of the protest. Anti-Kremlin activists described it as a peaceful walk to protest against the exclusion of their candidates.

Wow, they actually say everyone is free to protest, but government just has to approve it first. I think they're confused about what the word "free" means. It's like saying a slave is free to go, but the owner just has to approve it first.

Putin has to be sure that nobody besides his hand selected "opponents" get to be on the ballot. It's political theater and a shame that the Russian people are trapped in such a broken and backwards system.

Anyone reminded of that image where a Russian is wearing a mask that isn't even on his face properly? I guess that's common there.
