Tens of thousands of protesters marched through the eastern Russian city of Khabarovsk on Saturday in support of a popular local governor arrested this week for allegedly ordering several murders.

A court in Moscow on Friday ruled to hold 50-year-old Sergei Furgal for two months pending trial for the murders of several businessmen 15 years ago, as he vehemently denied any involvement.

Furgal’s nationalist Liberal-Democratic Party has thrown its weight behind the governor, and on Saturday said some “35,000 people came out to the streets” in Khabarovsk to protest his arrest.
