following these developments for us going through what you've been at manaos noir square is right in the heart of moscow where the violence broke out st petersburg has also been marking this day with riots is the situation under control now. and he says you can see ed's all back to normal here in the heart of the russian capital the road just bottom line is no square has been opened the traffic riot police are leaving as we speak the majority of them have already left there are still a few cars where the police officers are piling in and waiting to leave ambulances which were stationed in case of violence are also leaving so and most of the protesters have also gone so it is very quiet here in the heart of the russian capital boy just a few hours ago that was definitely not the case thousands of people were here in the very heart of moscow just a few steps away from the kremlin and a few fights broke out. where instigators basically caused clashes between
10:03 am
protesters and riot police it's a very festive time of year of course and many christmas decorations have already been put up the process the city a very large christmas tree stands and this tree out this square as well that was nearly demolished by the angry football fans that were here they were throwing parts of the tree various christmas decorations as well as bottles of the stones and bits of advice at the riot police various clashes broke out several fires were started we know that at least a few people were injured we saw some of the injured ourselves they were taken into ambulances and driven away to hospitals for medical assistant the dozens of people who were detained after clashes with riot police here in the heart of the russian capital but we know it was not just moscow that was witness to such aggression st petersburg also held a commemorative rally for you got a speed of a football fan of rough. in football clubs but the moscow was murdered last week
10:04 am
that rally also turned violent it was meant to be quite a small gathering and so not a lot of police presence was at the spot when the fans started throwing stones bottles. starting fires and throwing them throwing firecrackers at the police force throwing bits of ice out though a lot more of police officers riot police as well were deployed immediately to that location with a lot of people detained there as well but the most aggressive rally that we've seen so far has been here in money isn't it thankfully it does now seem to be over but we have heard reports that because a lot of the protesters are using the subway to leave this area that the police presence in moscow metro has also been intensified now i don't think seems i mean people were french league gathering to commemorate the death of this football fan but how exactly did this break out you wouldn't think that a commemoration march of this kind of violence would be seen. indeed and it wasn't
10:05 am
just the football that and it wasn't perhaps football that was the cause of the violence here in moscow today all a lot of the people that were here amongst the crowds were actually at the nationalists and they were. shouting up various races slogans. and trying to instigate violence and we saw ourselves a lot of people getting beaten and there was quite a lot of blood everywhere and those people were taken. into ambulances and driven away for medical assistance but that was perhaps why the violence originally started because the majority of the football fans that were here did seem to be intent on making this simply a commemorative rally and calling for justice to be served and for the of those responsible for the murder of hugo to speed up to be brought to justice but a lot of new nationalist groups were. here as well and they were the ones we
10:06 am

couple quote russell and goldie hawn as well as monica bellucci and unsympathetic rather than raising much needed money for charity this event seems to have also helped improve the prime minister's image. but i think anybody who can or can't saying you know to do it in a room full of absolute famous people like that should be commendable and also it's great for his reputation we got the story about the dog recently the puppy. it's not the first time the song. last year he went to the ministry different school for girls studies patriotic song with the lovely. russian girl and the more he says things like this the more that you know people can connect with the leader you know see him not as this stranger in this political power powerful position but actually as a normal russian guy who enjoys music. and the famous story is that he allegedly hired

another band called do you want to get the twenty thousand pounds from london by freedom of the kremlin called to be the manager of this this band said this is the kremlin of a band we wanted so i think he's a music fan and also it's it's you know showing that he loves western culture. we're going to return to our top story and to talk more about the riots that took place in moscow and st petersburg i'm joined by buddies card he's a political analyst from the russian institute of globalization studies and social movements thanks for being with us this evening the rallies held in moscow and st petersburg both turned violent do you think this is an expression of anger at the founds data or is there something more to which. i think it's very serious because these things were kind of coming full wide a period of time because of the authorities were not truly taking it seriously and i think first of all the nationalist far right is working very hard to mobilize the
10:17 am
football fans into different nationalist and the new nazi groups and they're doing a lot of propaganda with a lot of success at the same time and the third is were really taking that into question the groups. actually accusing them of causing trouble and being with those on rest and as a result of that we see what's happening we see that we all have to face these new challenges all national strides conflicts in most because and it is good which is very very serious in a country like russia. what do you think the demonstrators are hoping to achieve by staging this kind of violence on the streets. well. basically they the people who are fighting the police now are just kind of food soldiers which are manipulated and mobilized into this kind of brutus without even understanding what are they doing while the thugs those who are behind the rights definitely want to
10:18 am
destabilize creation and they desperately want to change the general social and political agenda of the country turning the questions into the major question of the contest in politics. now the whole reason obvious commemoration took place was because a spark talked. football fan was killed and the man thought to be responsible for the murder isn't police custody why have people been lashing out at the police. well first of all this whole episode is nothing but a pretext because during the last couple of years there were hundreds of north. of forty workers who were killed in russia according to students who were killed in russia and. nobody actually protested except for the small group to read the first activists who are as i told you before attacked by this would be easy diversion we know we end up with just having one foot being killed by. the people from
