After the rally was over, the police put up an iron fence around the scene where Nemtsov was gunned down on a bridge next to the Kremlin in Moscow late on February 27, 2015. This is the place where tens of thousands of people have brought flowers and portraits of Nemtsov.

Almost no incidents have been registered during the rally. However, Russia's TV RAIN reported that about 15 people had been detained amid shouts "Shame!" during the event.

Ukrainian Member of Parliament Oleksiy Honcharenko was among those detained.
