On 21 January 2017, the third global #StopPutinsWarInUkraine rally took place in over 56 cities and 20 countries, according to the organizers. The first such protest took place in June 2016. The organizers of the event shared links to the events in facebook:

According to the organizers, the main purpose of the action is to draw public attention to the Russian aggression in Ukraine, to show the importance of unity and solidarity with Ukraine, as well as to urge the world to increase pressure on Russia to restore territorial integrity and peace in our country.

The protesters demanded to fully withdraw all foreign occupation armed groups, military equipment, and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine including Crimea, increase the OSCE observation mission to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, release all hostages and illegally detained persons.

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!
