The largest number of participants on Saturday protest actions gathered in Vladivostok and Irkutsk. In Vladivostok, about 3 thousand people took part in the rally and procession.

More than 30 participants would have been detained in Vladivostok, in addition, before the rally, the coordinator of A. Navalny's headquarters in Primorye E. Vedernikova was arrested. At the same time, activists of A. Navalny's headquarters in Vladivostok appealed to supporters with an appeal not to go to the rally on Sunday, noting that false messages about the continuation of the protest actions, which are a provocation, are spread on social networks. In Irkutsk, the rally gathered over 2 thousand people. Before the start of the action, law enforcement officers detained the coordinator of A. Navalny's headquarters in Irkutsk S. Bespalov and his deputy Z. Sarapulov, accused of violating the established procedure for holding the rally, during the action itself they arrested four people, including the ex-head of the headquarters A. Navalny A.
