Fighter riot police in St. Petersburg was stabbed on uncoordinated protests on 12 June, reported to journalists the first Deputy Director of Regardie Sergei Melikov.

«With this action, the so-called protesters in St. Petersburg, the St. Petersburg OMON fighter was stabbed in the back», — Melikov said.

According to him, the only protection allowed the soldier to remain unscathed.

Earlier, the authorities of Petersburg have not agreed on supporters of opposition leader Alexei Navalny rally on June 12, denying all submitted sites, including on the field of Mars. The refusal was reasoned by holding cultural events, which may interfere with the protest action. The authorities proposed to postpone action in the Specific Park. However, supporters of Navalny rejected the offer and decided to hold a rally on the Champ de Mars within the agreed official festival «I Serve Russia».
