The OVD-Info monitoring group said that Russian police detained at least 23 people on June 12th at a protest in Moscow calling for punishment for police officers involved in the alleged framing of a journalist, Reuters has reported.

Police abruptly dropped drugs charges a day earlier against journalist Ivan Golunov, a rare U-turn by the authorities in the face of anger from his supporters who said he was framed for his reporting.
