Protests in Moscow – level 1

30-03-2017 15:00

This news is from Moscow. Thousands of people protest there. They protest against corruption. They also want Prime Minister Medvedev to step down.

This is a big anti-Kremlin protest. However, more people like Putin than the opposition.

Police arrest hundreds of people. They arrest Alexei Navalny, too. He is the opposition leader.

Difficult words: corruption (when somebody in power does something bad), step down (stop doing a job), opposition (people who do not like Putin).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
