MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — Several opposition members have appeared in Kudrinskaya Square park near the Barrikadnaya metro station. They have set on the benches and do not attract much attention.
Earlier, there was a so-called “camp” of the opposition in the park. According to bloggers, the police overnight to Monday detained several participants in the Kudrinskaya Square protest action.
One police bus is on duty at the park.
Meanwhile, the so-called “camp” of the opposition continues to operate in Arbat Street. There are about 15 activists there. They sit near the monument to Bulat Okudzhava with no slogans, no chants, no posters. The situation is calm, no police forces are observed in the vicinity.
The opposition “camp” at the Andrei Sakharov museum and community centre has ceased to exist in the meantime. As of 08:30, Moscow time, there were no people in the park near the Sakharov museum and community centre where a freedom festival was held on May 18-19 and opposition members were gathering. The square is absolutely empty. Only white ribbons tied around the flower beds and white balloons are the signs of the recent presence of the opposition there.
