The electoral commission banned about 30 candidates, mostly opposition politicians, from participating in the elections. Oppositionists were not allowed to participate in the elections, having recognized the signatures for their nomination invalid.

At the same time, the candidates themselves, who were not allowed to participate in the elections, say that the city authorities are afraid that the Moscow City Duma will pass under the control of forces disloyal to President Vladimir Putin..

The protest action was legal – the organizers had received permission in advance from the city authorities to hold it. Last week, police detained about 25 participants in unauthorized protests that began in the city on July 14.

The protesters, including opposition politicians Alexei Navalny, Ilya Yashin, Lyubov Sobol, Dmitry Gudkov and others, demanded that the authorities allow opposition candidates to participate in the elections. The protesters were holding posters with the words “Putin is lying” and “I have the right to choose.”.
