Ekho Moskvy radiostation correspondent Oleg Ovcharenko was summoned for questioning.

About the arrest of Alexander Rogoza reported war correspondent Arkady Kots in his Telegram. According to him, the journalist was taken to the police station, where they asked him for an editorial certificate and an editorial assignment. After that, taking an explanation from him, they released him.

The Dozhd journalist was also released after he presented the police with an editorial assignment and a journalist's ID. The journalist will have to return to the department later.

The police came to Oleg Ovcharenko's home and handed him a notice of summons for interrogation. He will have to explain himself for participating in an uncoordinated protest action. The journalist told the police that he was on assignment for the editorial board. He agreed to appear at the police station with his lawyer.

We will remind, on April 21, protests in support of the opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who is now in a colony, swept across the country again. On February 2, the court replaced his suspended sentence with a real one. The oppositionist will have to spend another 2.5 years behind bars. In the colony, Navalny's health condition deteriorated sharply. His lawyer says that a doctor is not allowed to see him.

During the April 21 protests and after them, about 1.9 thousand protesters were detained throughout the country.
