Police officers, agents of the Centre for Opposing Extremism as well as state inspectors appeared at the almanac's presentation in Nizhny Novgorod. They demanded to make a statement about the distribution of so called "extremist materials" on the event.
Officers confiscated the almanacs and arrested journalists Pavel Nikulin, Sofiko Arifdjanova, Mikhail Shubin and several other guests. Later all of them, except Pavel, were released. He was accused of insubordination against an official police instruction and remained in the police department for three days.
