The police officers currently occupied Manezhnaia and Teatralnaia Squares in Moscow, which are close to the Kremlin. The first police cars arrived there on Dec. 29, soon after it became known that the announcement of the Navalny brothers' verdicts would happen on Dec. 30 instead of Jan. 15.

Head of the department of regional security and anti-corruption of the Moscow City Council Alexei Maiorov in his conversation with "Interfax" announced that "all unauthorized actions will be stopped by law enforcement agencies." Employees of the Moscow underground "hot line" in a conversation with TASS noted that the south hall station "Okhotny Riad" exit will be closed from 6:00 p.m. "until further notice."
