For the third week, protestors in Khabarovsk have gone to the street to demand that their governor is tried in Khabarovsk after he had been detained and flown to Moskow over murder charges. Protestors say that he possibly has been set up by the government in Moskow.

The reported number of protestants varies widely with the city authorities reporting 6,500 and the protest organizers 50,000 participants.
