Four YABLOKOs activists detained in Ekaterinburg

Press Release
September 19, 2009

YABLOKOs activists were detained in Ekaterinburg on September 19 and brought to the local police department for investigation. Four YABLOKOs activists (including three minors) were handing leaflets inviting citizens to join YABLOKOs picket against growth of tariffs for housing and utilities services on September 20.

The police told to Maxim Petlin, leader of regional YABLOKO branch, that the activists did not have a right to distribute leaflets without publishers imprint data.

Maxim Petlin called these claims absurd, as the law does not require to indicate imprint data on the leaflets outside the election period.

The picket against growth of tariffs will be conducted on permission of the authorities on September 20. YABLOKO will protest against 70% growth of tariffs on cold water provision by 2010.
