Aleksandra Parushina, 45, an opposition councilwoman in the Moscow district of Khamovniki, says she was struck in the head by police who "brutally" dispersed protesters near Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin's office on July 27. Parushina is calling for the resignation of Sobyanin, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Demonstrators were protesting the refusal of election officials to register some opposition figures as candidates in Moscow’s municipal elections.
