The police claimed that they had found drug bundles in his home which they said he meant to sell.

Mr Golunov was arrested last week and charged with dealing mephedrone and cocaine, accusations that many linked with his muckraking of corruption by Moscow officials.

Before Golunov's release 25,000 people had expressed interest in the solidarity march on Facebook. Many saw Golunov's release as a Kremlin attempt to crush the new protest wave.

Protests then began in Moscow and several other Russian cities.

On June 11, all charges were dropped against Ivan Golunov.

Krivosheev also called on authorities "to immediately and unconditionally release the protestors arrested today".

Golunov thanked everyone for their support and said he would continue his work.

The correspondent of the investigations department of the Medusa edition, Ivan Golunov, was detained in Moscow on the afternoon of June 6.

A member of staff from German magazine Der Spiegel was held as well as journalists from Vedomosti and Echo Moscow Radio. The activist wrote to his arrest on Twitter: "It makes sense, the leaders are hell scared because of the fantastic and unanimous expression of Solidarity in the Golunow thing".

Authorities had said the pro-Golunov demonstrators could hold a rally on Sunday, but protesters believed a delay could have sapped a sense of momentum.

On the same day, Russian Human Rights Commissioner Tatiana Moskalkova voiced her concern with Golunov's case saying that it has highlighted a number of important issues about existing detention procedures.

"We should not stand down, even if Ivan is free. A lot of drug cases happen like this", said 15-year-old Yegor, who wore an "I am Golunov" T- shirt. In the second city of Saint Petersburg, around 100 people massed in the city centre, urging authorities to release victims of police abuse like respected historian Yury Dmitriyev. "We should not lull ourselves into complacency", said local lawmaker Maksim Reznik.

During his two decades in power, Putin has silenced most of his critics and sought to muzzle the media.

Russian police in riot gear moved in against the march of more 1,000 people amid screams of protesters shouting "you are criminals" and "stop police terror".

Police abruptly dropped drug charges a day earlier against investigative journalist Ivan Golunov, a rare U-turn by authorities in the face of anger from his supporters who said he was targeted over his reporting.
