MOSCOW — Russian opposition activists say an organizer of a provincial
march to commemorate the 2015 slaying of opposition politician Boris
Nemtsov has been severely beaten.
The opposition is holding rallies across Russia Saturday to commemorate
one year since Nemtsov, a former deputy prime minister, was gunned down
just outside the Kremlin. Authorities in several Russian cities have
denied the protesters permission to rally.
Opposition activist Alexei Tabalov said on Friday that Vyacheslav
Kislitsin was beaten by unknown attackers in the morning outside the
factory where he works. He said Kislitsin suffered a heart attack and a
broken rib and has been hospitalized.
Saturday's protest is expected to be the biggest opposition rally in months.
