"They stripped me, waist up, said that I would be expelled from the university, that my parents would be fired. For about 30-40 minutes, they were trying to get me to tell them my phone password but I never told them. As a result, one of them just took it, bent it [in half] and broke it. And he just took it,” said the detainee.

It was noted that among the detainees, there was a minor, whom his mother eventually managed to take home from a police station after being denied access.

Initially, activists planned to hold the “March for Peace. Against violence. ” However, one of the organizers of the event, human rights activist Lev Ponomarev, was arrested on the eve of the event.
