Opposition Camp Broken Up For Distributing Water

From the blog of activist photographer Ilya Varlamov:

Another opposition camp on its way from Chistoprudny Boulevard to the Barrikadnaya metro station was broken up by police this evening, unable to hold out for a single day.

The police have made arrests, basing these on the lack of proper food documentation in the oppositionists “kitchen.”

The arrest of the oppositionists began unexpectedly.

In the evening, a group of police officers without proper documentation confiscated food and cash donations that were in the camp, and detained several nearby people. In the official version, the reason for the confiscation was the lack of supporting documents [to distribute] the food. In response, the oppositionists attempted to block the police van, breaking its mirror and blocking the road, after which new police buses began to arrive and arrest more people.
