Short Fuse: Will more than 1000 protesters be arrested in Moscow on the 3rd of August 2019?

Question

On the 27th of July, 2019, more than 1000 protesters were arrested in Moscow (Guardian). They were protesting the exclusion of opposition candidates from upcoming elections.

Opposition leaders said they would call for another protest on the 3rd of Augsust, 2019 (Guardian again).

Will more than 1000 protesters be arrested in Moscow on the 3rd of August, 2019?

  • Resolution is by credible media report.
  • Failure to locate one before the 7th of August, 2019 triggers ambiguous resolution.
  • 1000 arrests resolves positive (because of rounding issues).
