Yesterday peaceful protest took place at the gates of the detention facility, Akrestina.

Relatives and sympathizers have come to support those who are in custody. People tried to pass food and warm clothes. Somebody made a fire at the gate. Police asked people to disperse, as the action was unauthorized. People stood outside the prison for about two hours, holding candles while singing and praying.
