Event

A civil society group is scheduled to hold a demonstration in downtown Samara on Sunday, February 10, to protest the recent decision to end some minibus services in the city.

Around 500 people are expected to participate in the demonstration. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area. 

Context

The demonstration is being organized to protest the cancelation of minibus service in the Krasnoglinsky district.

Individuals in Samara are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution and anticipate heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions.
