On Wednesday morning, the police asked the people who stayed in the opposition camp to leave the territory of the camp. Those who did not obey the police order, were arrested -- 23 people in total. All others were moved to Chistye Prudy , or Clear Ponds metro station.

Afterwards, a group of people headed to Barrikadnaya metro station and settled down in the park near a Stalin-era high rise building. They said that Ilya Yashin and Ksenia Sobchak, one of the leaders of the opposition movement, urged them to arrange the camp near Barrikadnaya. Yashin later said, though, that there were no plans to arrange a new camp in the area. The place near the station is used as a venue, Interfax reports.
