Russia protests: Government crackdown intensifies

The government is using all of the tools at its disposal to suppress the movement.

Protests in Moscow are due to continue for the third Saturday in a row despite authorities mounting an ever-larger crackdown.

In the run-up to Saturday’s protest, key figures have been arrested and there is a concern that more mass arrests are expected on the day.
