Russia's three major newspapers use the same headline that reads"I we are Ivan Golunov

People attend a rally, organised by the Union of Journalists, in Moscow on Sunday.

The rally was prompted by a recent action against investigative journalist Ivan Golunov who had been arrested on a drug charge that supporters said was fabricated.

Golunov, who works for a news website, had been reporting on corruption in the Moscow city government and the private sector.

The rally, called by the Russian Union of Journalists and named "Justice and Fairness to Everyone", had drawn a few hundred people by early afternoon, a witness said.

The state-run TASS news agency quoted Solovyev as saying on June 15 that he had invited Golunov to the rally to "hear from him how he sees the further development of civil society, what should we do to avoid our compatriots finding themselves in this situation".

Martin Kochesoko, a Circassian activist who had criticised state policies on minorities, has been placed under arrest in Nalchik after officers allegedly found 263 grams of marijuana in his auto last week, police told state media on Thursday evening.
