The number of Rosguard outfits that patrol the streets in the Russian capital has been increased for preventive work after tightening restrictive measures due to coronavirus. Patrolmen will find out from people the reason for leaving the house and check the documents.
As explained by TASS in the press service of the Moscow Rosguard, in particular, "the number of extra-departmental security and riot police units that serve in collaboration with police officers has been increased."
As capital mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on the website’s website the night before, self-isolation regime will be strengthened in Moscow. According to him, such measures are necessary due to the fact that the number of coronavirus infected and dead from it began to grow rapidly.

First, passes will be issued for trips to work, then for trips for other purposes, and only at the last stage, if necessary, for movement within the area. At the same time, the access system will be declarative in nature, although the city authorities have the right to verify the accuracy of the information provided.
