In addition to the demand to release the prisoners of the 6 of May rally case, picketers chanted the names of other political prisoners, including Ildar Dadin, convicted for anti-constitutional Article 212.1 of the Criminal Code (Repeated violation of the established order of organising or holding meetings, rallies, demonstrations, marches or pickets). Youth Yabloko demands that this article must be cancelled.
Provocateurs from the pro-government organisation SERB tried to disrupt the rally, insulting the picketers. The police asked the picketers not to respond.
