On March 26 between 35,000 and 90,000 people took part in anti-corruption demonstrations in about 100 cities across Russia. Up to 15,000 persons attended the protest in Moscow alone. About 1,800 people were detained.
The largest protests since 2011 are part of a campaign called “He is not your Dimon,” referring to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny has accused Medvedev of amassing a large property empire through large scale corruption.
