Police began to visit the home of participants in uncoordinated protests in support of opposition leader Alexey Navalny. We are talking about those who were not detained during the rallies. Now they are calculated by the CCTV cameras that the Moscow mayor's office so diligently and extensively installed.

Previously, law enforcement officers came home only to those who had previously been detained for uncoordinated actions. Now, writes TV Rain, referring to the participants in the rallies on Pushkinskaya Square on January 23, the protesters are being calculated using the recordings made by CCTV cameras.

The interlocutor of the publication said that the district police officer came to him on January 30, said that he had been identified by a video camera, asked several questions about whether he went to the rally on January 23, and, if so, what exactly he did there. The visit ended with the fact that the district police officer filled out a paper on not bringing a citizen to administrative responsibility and with a warning: "If they are now detained at the action, they will immediately go to jail, and not write out a fine". In addition, the district police officer told Dozhd's interlocutor that now law enforcement officers are bypassing everyone who was identified with the help of video cameras installed in the places of the rallies. He advised to continue wearing a mask. Such a survey is connected with a criminal case initiated by the Investigative Committee, however, the district police officer did not specify which one.

It's worth reminding that after the protest actions in Moscow - on January 23, 30 and February 2 - 927 people were arrested. Such a number of people led to the fact that the detention centers were overcrowded. In addition to the overcrowded cells, the prisoners also complained for problems with parcels, with bed linen and personal hygiene items, for a long refusal to issue confiscated items and documents upon release from the Sakharovo detention center in New Moscow. Many said that before that they were kept in paddy wagons without heating, food or water and even without the opportunity to go to the toilet for many hours, sometimes more than a day.
