The Russian government's track record on protests is not great. Surprisingly, that lovable scamp Putin isn't too fond of people shouting in the streets about how terrible he is. So, while there have been massive protests, there have been equally massive arrests. It's the good ol' "You can't have people in the streets if they're all in prison" maneuver.
Seriously, what kind of country arrests its own citizens for protesting? Good thing that doesn't happen in America.
Well, in the course of arresting everyone who called Putin, and I'm paraphrasing here, "A kleptocratic wang-head," a few Pokemon Go players were arrested. One such player was so adamant about catchin' 'em all, he continued to play while in the police van. Either he's super into those Charizards, or getting arrested for public assembly is so common in Russia, it barely phases people anymore.
I just hope this inspires young Russians to take to the streets to protest the Kremlin by staging massive Pokemon Go Fuck Yourselves rallies. Anything to force Putin to awkwardly try to talk about Pokemon, like your out of touch (and kinda murderous) dad. As he broods in his sinisterly lit strategy room, he steeples his hands under his chin and snarls, "These Pyook-eh-mehns, they must be stopped. Find this Pyeek-a-chew and Bulb-a-dinosaur... and fetch the polonium tea."
