Russians vote as police detain supporters of opposition leader

Hundreds arrested as Russians protest pension reform - media

Officers held dozens more as protests kicked off in eastern Russian Federation and Siberia, with demonstrations set to take place in Saint Petersburg and Moscow in the afternoon.

In a statement, Google-owned YouTube said it considered all all valid requests from governmental bodies, adding: "We require advertisers to comply with local law and our general advertising policies".

People hold a poster reading "Pension reform" during a Communist Party rally protesting retirement-age hikes in St. Petersburg on September 2.

Thousands protested against the pension reform on September 9 at rallies in 80 Russian cities organized by opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

The results came during September 9 elections across Russian Federation that were held as police detained more than 1,000 people at antigovernment protests.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is 65, has said that the pension age should be raised to 60 for women and 65 for men to address the increasing burden on the pension system.

Thousands of people took to the streets across Russian Federation yesterday in fresh protests against the government's plan to raise the retirement age.

The proposed pension changes, which are now going through parliament, have shaved around 15 percentage points off President Vladimir Putin's popularity rating.

The largest number arrested was 58 in Yekaterinburg, OVD-Info said.

The protests started in Russia's Far East, where Navalny's team said that more than 400 protesters took to the streets in the city of Vladivostok chanting "No to pension reform" and calling on Putin to resign. Social media showed footage of police hitting protestors with batons in Moscow as their colleagues tried to wrench them out of the police's grip.

Russia's independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported country-wide clashes between the protesters and the police, with hundreds detained.

The protests coincide with elections for 26 heads of Russia's 85 regions, including in Moscow, which are being held on Sunday.

Kremlin ally, Sergei Sobyanin has been re-elected as Moscow's mayor, according to results released by Moscow election commission. The authorities refused to authorize most of the meetings, declaring them illegal.

He had planned to lead a protest in Moscow on Sunday, but a court last month convicted him of breaking protest laws and jailed him for 30 days.

Four candidates from Russia's ruling United Russia party have failed to secure first-round victories in gubernatorial elections over the weekend and will now face their respective challengers in a runoff.
