Security measures tightened in central Moscow
MOSCOW. Aug 17 (Interfax) - Law enforcers have tightened security measures along the boulevards in central Moscow, where the opposition is conducting single-person pickets on Saturday.
The police have cordoned off the Pushkin Square and the square in front of the Izvestiya publisher, an Interfax correspondent reported. A separate cordon was deployed around the Alexander Pushkin monument. Iron fences were installed along the Novopushkinsky Park at the side of Tverskaya Street.
Police squads are on duty on the Pushkin and Triumphal squares.
Police cordons were set up on Bolshaya Dmitrovka Street.
Special forces units wearing bulletproof vests have been deployed around the Nadezhda Krupskaya monument on the Sretensky Gate Square. Two police vans are parked nearby.
Security measures in the Moscow underground have also been tightened.
As reported, the opposition planned a series of one-person pickets in Moscow for Saturday; they do not need to be sanctioned by the authorities.
