International

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.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!
