to. look into the future of. science and research. this is the daily news lawyer from berlin and brushes off position takes off a day nationwide. and authorities in law school are preparing for the protests this after of raising the offices of kremlin critic alex and following the earlier this morning also coming up. another day of heavy fighting in syria is offering region turkey claims a diplomatic success in it so friends of against the u.s.
back to kurdish militia. thank you for joining us police in moscow have forced their way into the office of all physicians had spoken kremlin critic alexei involving a spokesperson for the opposition said that the police were using the ruse of a bomb threat to question members of the opposition and this comes on a day that the opposition has announced russia wide protests in over one hundred cities in support of a boy cost of presidential elections in march which has called a farce. the fall in the south won't be allowed to actually run but he was a band previous fraud conviction which he says was trumped up and he has turned all
his campaign offices into what he called protest offices we caught up with one of his volunteers and patients by work now. first of all we're going to cross over to law school and standing by there is an unfair when for the latest on the story and the russian police have entered the valleys office ahead of a protest this morning where is life in a valley right now. that's a good question we didn't know for a long time and then the staff in moscow the only thing we knew is that the staff in moscow this year who were running a live broadcast of the protests says that he's not he was not in their office and now recently he actually came on air in their live broadcast and he said that he was i don't address in moscow which is the official address where the air pollution is registered registered so obviously a bit of a stunt there. since the valley is is kind of mounting this is as it were
this threat on the streets of russia to bloody near future and now we don't know what will happen to no violence now that he's revealed where he is he has been arrested three times in the last year so we'll have to wait and see what happens there. in the civic country demonstrations have already started how they gone so far. you know there have been thirty in a handful of cities some of them have been peaceful. but there is information from one monitoring of monitoring organization that there has already been twenty seven arrests most of them in the cities of came in and so on. where earlier on i saw a live feed of the protests people were chanting russia will be free apparently some of them has now been arrested and the head of the protests there were already
searches in office in the valleys offices across the country knows i need. staff to themselves say that seventy eight out of their eighty four offices across the country were searching when suddenly people here his supporters are still coming out onto the streets they're defiant and actually i caught up with one of his volunteers in st petersburg who also seemed to think that it was worth the risk elect let's take a look at the at my meeting with her. hopes her message sticks she's hanging up fliers in st petersburg's courtyards calling for people to boycott the upcoming presidential elections and i came to st petersburg from siberia for one of these protests in october for now she's decided to stay and is volunteering for the politicians campaign every day eighteen the upcoming elections would be her
first but she won't be casting a ballot. let's say you want to eat something but there are only empty plates on the table and only one with food so if they take that one away i'm not going to go chew on the empty plates. isn't taking part in the elections i'm not going to do. in december he was banned from taking part in the presidential race the electoral commission cited his previous conviction which the anti corruption activist says was politically motivated in the first place president vladimir putin has also made his position on the politician clear he usually refers to me in vague descriptions and refuses to name his name in public reactions to mentioning his name on the street are mixed i mean. because russian state television hardly talks about it and even the president never mentions him. and i would guess that
a lot of people don't even know who he is. mourning over the news the western puppet policies of it nationalistic. one but that's a close these trying to create chaos he's trying to bring russia of course and i don't like it. meanwhile at the st petersburg office and the other volunteers and staff are steering their own course they are planning for the upcoming protests discussing how to deal with possible arrests herself was briefly detained at a recent demonstration but she's decided the cause is worth the risk. i want to show that there is a civil society in russia or some people who are prepared to take to the streets and express their views and that doing that isn't anything to be ashamed of lucas on school says something important villages to. people in the stimulus money. during the upcoming vote putting our hopes to work as an election monitor and
she'll continue to fly nobody needs fly. and of course pauline is not alone more people are expecting to fly novell names flag in moscow and st petersburg shortly as well emily what can we expect from the protests in the bigger things he said. well it's really hard to know at this point those protests were not authorized by the these city also already provided an alternative place for nobody supporters to gather but nobody said that they were much too far out of the city and indeed they really were far outside of the city so his supporters will be gathering in the center of both moscow and st petersburg and i'm in moscow on the street where these protesters are set to gather in well in an hour about an hour and there is a huge police presence here already there are a lot of police vans i see about twenty police standing standing by here those
police vans so it's it's it's hard to know because the last protest here in moscow did actually go ahead without. without arrests it did go ahead peacefully but these intimidation. these searches ahead of the protests and also the huge police presence here don't look good and many chairman thank you very much for bringing us up to date. in the capital. african heads of states are gathering for the annual african union full mess in forming the african union will dominate the two day meeting headed by rwandan president paul galway who is taking over as the union's chairman african leaders are also expected to make a joint statement condemning u.s. president donald trump's reports at center on the states of their nations.
