Inconsistent pacifism // Anti-war demonstrations took place in St. Petersburg

During the day of February 24, after Russia launched what the country’s leadership called a “special operation in Ukraine,” residents in the Russian regions began to take to the streets in anti-war protests. In St. Petersburg, citizens stood in single pickets, in connection with which at least seven people were detained. At 6 pm, a centralized action began near Gostiny Dvor, condemning the actions of the military on the territory of Ukraine. According to OVD-info (the organization has been given the status of a foreign agent), about a thousand people gathered at Gostiny Dvor, about 275 of them were detained at the time the issue went to press.
