This photo taken by Dmitry Shelomentsev, shows a group of detained people inside the deportation centre Sakharovo, 70km (43,7 miles) south-west of Moscow which was urgently transformed into a detention center in the absence of prison space, Russia, Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021. Dmitry Shelomentsev was among those who had to wait in a police bus for hours at Sakharavo before being taken in. Sentenced to 15 days in jail for participating in the Tuesday rally, Shelomentsev messaged the AP reporter on Feb. 4, 2021 morning from a cell for eight inmates where 28 people were held, awaiting transfer to smaller ones. After five hours in a crowded cell, Shelomentsev was transferred to a smaller one — for four people.
