MOSCOW, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - Police will tighten security in downtown Moscow, law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass.
Moscow police takes measures to ensure security and law and order in the downtown, a law enforcer said on Thursday.

Control will be taken at all squares in downtown Moscow - the Lubyanka, Pushkin, Tverskaya and Manezh squares. They are patrolled by reinforced police units.
