MOSCOW, January 26 (RIA Novosti) – All those detained during an unsanctioned rally over the “gay propaganda” bill have been released, Moscow’s Interior Ministry confirmed on Saturday.

“All those detained on Friday at Georgievsky Pereulok were released after administrative offense reports were compiled,” a spokesman for the Interior Ministry’s Moscow branch told RIA Novosti.

Clashes between supporters and opponents of the draft law broke out on Friday outside the State Duma, where the first reading of the bill was taking place.

Officers intervened to break up the scuffles and disperse the protesters, detaining twenty people for attempting to hold an unsanctioned rally.

The bill received overwhelming support in the Duma, with 388 votes for it, one against, and one abstention.
