Police in Russia have arrested at least 61 people on Friday for holding unauthorized protests. The arrests show that the Russian government is willing to squash any protests in their county, not just protests in Sochi.

In the city of Nalchik, police arrested 37 people. In St. Petersburg, four gay-rights activists were arrested for supporting the Olympic Charter's principle of nondiscrimination. At least 19 people were arrested near the Red Square in Moscow during a protest for gay rights.
