The police detained six participants of a “walk in support of Ukraine” on Pushkinskaya square in Moscow. This is reported by grani.ru publication on their Twitter page.

Meanwhile, the website of the project “OVD-Info”, lending help to detained protesters, informs, that two activists were arrested “for innapropriate clothing,” and rest were detained “for innapropriate language” and to “check their documents”.

One of the participants of the protest reported that was wearing a yellow top and blue jeans. The rest of the participants had Ukrainian symbols on their clothing.

We remind you that a Russian-speaking animation team leader in “Mistral” children’s camp on the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria made schoolchildren from Ukraine take off their vyshyvankas.
