"Political opposition forces are using new technologies to carry out public events – using toys with placards at mini-protests," Andrei Mulintsev, the city’s deputy police chief, said at a press conference this week, according to local media. "In our opinion, this is still an unsanctioned public event."
"The authorities’ attempt to limit citizens’ rights to express their position has become absurd," said Lyudmila Alexandrova, a 26-year-old graduate student and protest organiser. "We wanted to hyperbolise this attempt and show the absurdity and farce of officials’ struggle with their own people."
