Police have begun detaining people near Moscow’s Preobrazhenskaya Ploshchad metro station, where the Moscow City Court is located.
According to the newspaper “Project” there are already 23 people in a paddy wagon.
The media report that the police are snatching only young people from the crowd. A correspondent of the opposition newspaper Sota Vision was detained in front of the Moscow City Court itself.
Earlier on the morning of February 2, law enforcement agencies surrounded several streets around the Moscow City Court, where the hearing to replace Alexei Navalny’s suspended sentence with a real one was to take place.
