The lawyer Ekaterina Romanova has reported on Twitter that she is ready to employ on good salaries two riot police officers who two days earlier refused to detain peaceful protestors on Pushkin Square.

As Novaya gazeta reporter Evgeny Feldman has said, a whole campaign has developed on social networking sites as users call on employers to support Romanova’s idea and offer employment to other law enforcement officers who have been forced to leave their jobs.

Ekaterina Romanova is a participant in a network providing legal assistance to those detained at the protests on 6-9 May, organized by the deputy Maksim Kats.
