Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny calls on Russians from prison via Twitter to protest en masse against the invasion of Ukraine. “Putin is not Russia.
If there’s one thing Russia can be proud of right now, it’s the 6,824 people imprisoned for taking the streets against the war.”
Navalny calls on Russians, not only in Russia and Belarus but also elsewhere in the world, to protest against the Russian invasion of Ukraine every weekday in the main city squares and at Russian embassies and to do so every weekend at 14 hours to do.
“Let’s not become a nation of scared silent people. Or cowards pretending not to notice the aggressive war against Ukraine started by our clearly insane czar,” Navalny said. “Putin is not Russia.
If there’s one thing we can be proud of in Russia, it’s those 6,824 people who were arrested for occupying the streets – without any appeal – with protest signs against the war.”
