Thousands of people took part in anti-corruption protests, demanding the resignation of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, across several cities in Russia on March 26, leading to dozens of detentions.

The protests were held in response to a report released in early March by a group affiliated with Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny, which accused the prime minister of accumulating funds for assets through charities and NGOs.
