On a small patch in front of cherished turnstiles gathered about 500 people. After passing the first obstacle, obilechenym citizens was coming the next phase of testing: a detailed examination of all things. It looked like this: should a few tables near each of which is a policeman, and offers a shake out all the stuff from their bags, tents must be deployed.
