Police on Saturday picked up five persons when a group of people staged demonstration in front of the Russian embassy in Helsinki demanding release of the political prisoners in Russia.
 
The law enforcers later released the demonstrators after realising fine from them, police said.
 
Sources said that the protesters gathered in front of the embassy bearing torches in the evening when they chanted slogans demanding release of the political prisoners in Russia.
 
Being informed by the embassy officials, police rushed to the spot and asked them to turn off the torches.
 
But the protesters did not pay heed to the police call and at certain stage the law enforcers nabbed five of them. Later they were released but police fined them for the occurrence.
 
Earlier, on Friday night a group of agitated people gathered in front of the embassy and painted the zebra crossing on the road outside of the embassy with rainbow colours -- the symbol of same sex marriage pride group.
 
The Russian government recently enacted a law imposing restriction on information and communication regarding same sex marriage.
