  Policeman on parade

but the only encounter we had with a policeman was when one came up to us at the concert in Red Square to celebrate the WW2 60th anniversary and asked us if we would like to go and sit down the front instead of standing!
I'm not saying people don't get hassled, and it really is necessary to have your passport or a copy of it on you at all times as well as your entry documents, and to be aware of how to deal with the situation if you do get stopped, but don't think it happens to everyone. I have no doubt that young travellers probably get stopped more than older visitors but times are changing in Russia and advice that is out of date could make you worry unecessarily.
