A funeral has been held for Russian opposition activist Alexander Dolmatov, who reportedly committed suicide after his request for political asylum in the Netherlands was turned down.

A fight broke out after some people at the ceremony, reportedly members of the National Bolshevik Party, accused opposition leader Sergey Udaltsov of using the event for self-promotion.
