Residents of the Far Eastern Russian city of #Khabarovsk took to the streets for the 22nd day in a row, as thousands of locals protested against the arrest of former Governor Sergey Furgal, accused of ordering killings in the 2000s
But the crowd was significantly smaller than in previous weeks. Around 3,500 people gathered in the center of the former Far Eastern capital, according to official estimates of the regional government. This contrasts with an implausible opposition claim that 90,000 took part last week, although other sources put it at 15,000-20,000.
Despite inclement weather, #protesters marched through the city’s central streets, holding banners in support of #Furgal – a member of the far-right LDPR.
