She clarified in an interview with a TASS correspondent that she had not seen minors at the rallies.
“My colleagues also went out to Sukharevskaya Square and informed me that there are no minors today”, - the ombudsman answered.
She suggested that "the common work of all - educators, ombudsmen for the rights of the child and human - has yielded results".
In addition, Potyaeva pointed out that about 120 people had been detained in the capital by 2 pm, but this figure is constantly changing.
"We are monitoring the situation now. We haven’t received any appeals yet”, - said the human rights ombudsman in Moscow.
Earlier it was reported that in Moscow, protesters on January 31 were detained with particular cruelty. Several metro stations were closed in advance in the city, but this may continue - "ad hoc". For example, at 11 o'clock the station "Chistye Prudy", which was not originally planned to be closed, was closed at the exit of passengers.
In the capital, not only riot police and policemen are on duty on the streets, but also national guards and vigilantes.
