Experts said the Kremlin is failing to contain the protests.

“You can no longer ignore a person who has become a nationwide political figure, even though, of course, he’s barred,” Moscow political analyst Maria Lipman stated. “He has been barred from taking part in political process and now he’s behind bars. Still, he was able to enlarge the awareness of him among the Russian people.”

The Putin regime tried to outlaw the flashlight protest, but ongoing demonstrations have shown the latest failure of its repressive machine.
