talk to our correspondent emily sure when in moscow. emily great to see you know we know that nobody has been detained other any more details available right now. no unfortunately all we know is that the venue was on his way to pushkin square which is right behind me until about five minutes ago there were a lot of protesters here they've only just moved on as they say they want to go towards the kremlin and never any was on his way here apparently he was shouting. that putin is a thief when he was arrested and in a way that's not surprising because as i walked here along to the sky a street which is the street that no one you wanted to have these protests on. where the protests have been taking place there was police every five meters so it seems that they were perhaps ready for him at any point along this main street. now
as you said the protest was just there and they're moving now towards the kremlin what can you tell us about the situation are things tense or are they under control . well. things were tense up until about a half an hour ago i would say because along this main road which is just to the right of me there were huge police vans lining the road police standing there and there were huge crowds of people on pushkin square now as you see people have sort of started moving on in a way it seemed that people were waiting for some kind of an escalation perhaps waiting for the police to react there were only around fifteen arrests in the whole of moscow according to one monitor so things have stayed rather peaceful and for that reason perhaps protesters have decided to move on and go for a walk as they say. and protest along this main road now that we're seeing
some pictures also from moscow but we know that moscow is not the only place where these protests are happening today actually dozens of cities in russia they are taking part what are people calling for at these demonstrations and do you feel like with the political situation right now will this have an effect at all. well the slogans that i've been hearing here in moscow have been things like putin is a thief down with the czar. and so on so people are really accusing putin this inner circle of corruption which is an accusation that he has leveled at him as well there are protests today in over one hundred cities across russia there have been around one hundred eighty arrests according to recent figures across the whole country so things have remained rather peaceful whether this will have an effect is another question ultimately in russia most people do support bloody me. putin
he's running for a fourth term now and it's likely that he will win and that that the majority of people basically think. that that's fine and and aren't necessarily in favor of what me is doing here calling for a boycott. militia when moscow thank you very much for being on the scene for us. turkey says it has assurances from washington that the u.s. will no longer arm the kurdish y p g a militia in syria has also reiterated demands of the us pull troops out of the key northern syrian town of monday's turkish and y p g forces clashed again on saturday ankara is pushing ahead with a military operation aimed at clearing up the kurdish militia from the turkish border area. that activists say saturday's fighting concentrated in the northwest of the african region and this
