Police have recalled through their Twitter account that “it is not allowed” and have urged protesters to abandon the rallies . “Many of the people do not see reason and remain in the place, some have climbed the Fountain of Friendship of the peoples and throw bottles from the crowd at our colleagues,” the security forces have denounced, referring to a protest in the vicinity of Alexanderplatz square.
