Russian independent monitoring group OVD-Info said police had arrested demonstrators in 36 Russian cities during protests on Sept. 21, with over half of them arrested in St. Petersburg and Moscow.

The Moscow Prosecutor's Office had earlier warned that organizing or participating in such demonstrations could be punished by up to 15 years in prison.
