Opposition leader Alexei Navalny - now serving a 30-day prison sentence for organizing unauthorized public events - called for the rallies, which were held in dozens of towns and cities to protest a government proposal to increase the state pension age by five years.
The pulled videos showed Navalny calling for Russians to demonstrate in the country to protest a plan to raise the nation's retirement age, BBC News reported. Yekaterinburg comes the second with 183 people being detained. An Associated Press journalist counted at least 30 people detained at the St. Petersburg protest, which was adjacent to the Finlad Station rail terminal. The vote took place amid nationwide pension protests organized by opposition politician Alexei Navalny in which over 800 people were reportedly arrested.
"I have come here to protest against the pension reform, I have to live in this country and I want to have hope for the future and a good old age", said 22-year-old Nikolai Borodin.
The proposed reforms would gradually raise the retirement age for women to 60 and men to 65.
Protests organised by Navalny have become a vehicle for expressing discontent with Russian President Vladimir Putin and government corruption. The ruling party also lost seats in some regional parliaments to members of the Communist Party and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russian Federation, the news agencies reported, citing election officials.
