Sunday, December 2, in St. Petersburg, about 50 people came out to rally against the military aggression of Russia against Ukraine. This is reported by local media.
The picket was organized by the activist of the St. Petersburg democratic organization “Solidarity” Olga Smirnova. She, along with other concerned Russians expressed the view that the attack on Ukrainian military ships and capture sailors was another attempt by Russia to increase the area occupation of the Ukrainian territories.
Activists on the picket demanded the release of Ukrainians and to return the Ukrainian ships, and to stop naval blockade against Ukraine in the Azov sea. One of the requirements was to punish those responsible for the pirate attack.
The picketers said that the Ukrainian sailors knock readings on “illegal border crossing” and threatened with criminal punishment up to 6 years. The protesters also demanded to give the sailors the status of “prisoners of war” and expressed outrage at the actions of the Russian military, who opened fire on foreign vessels that do not pose a threat.
One of the activists during a picket was attacked by an aggressive female. She broke up the participants of the promotion poster. Other provocations were not.
But activists for security purposes is not stretched along the Nevsky prospect, and just followed each other from different posters. In the picket was attended by activists of “Solidarity”, “Apple”, “Indefinite protest” and other movements. The action lasted nearly three hours.
We will remind, Putin’s aggression in the sea of Azov: Russia has brought Ukrainians unheard of charges. Seized Ukrainian ship is still in Russia, there keep our guys.
