The head of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC) Valery Fadeev called the unauthorized actions taking place in Russia on Sunday a provocation that has nothing to do with the protection of rights, TASS reports.
He stated the need to clearly divide the protest in the form of rallies, processions, demonstrations, which the Constitution of Russia provides. Fadeev stressed that any democratic society presupposes the protection of the rights, freedoms, and rights of certain groups of the population. And what can be observed today has nothing to do with either protecting rights or fighting for a better life, but only worsens the situation, he said.
In addition, the head of the HRC pointed to the aggressive moods of the demonstrators, but at the same time noted that the police are trying to prevent aggression from the protesters.
Fadeev added that the HRC is closely following what is happening and has yet to analyze what will happen next.
As a reminder, on January 31, unauthorized actions are taking place in Moscow and other cities of Russia. Similar demonstrations took place on 23 January. Law enforcement officers have repeatedly warned about responsibility for participation in unauthorized events.
