2014/08/01 • Russia

Russian activists of the Maidan Solidarity Committee organization announced a march in support of Ukraine, to be held on August 5, writes Russkiy Monitor. According to activists, the [permit] application has been submitted for a procession to be held on August 5, 2014 at 8-11pm from Pushkinskaya Metro boulevard to Turgenev Square. A lot of people are expected to come.

The Maidan Solidarity Committee was founded in late 2013 as a sign of solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

At the same time, on August 2 a “concert/rally in support of Donetsk Rus” will be held in Moscow, planned by 19 organizations. A similar event held on June 11,  “Standing for Donbas”,  was attended by only a few hundred Moscow residents despite extensive media coverage.

    The stagnant clotted cream of Duma needed a hijacking plan for Russia’s fledgling democracy and Putin an unknown KGB hit man was assigned the role of acting leader of Russia.Clearly their can be no more corrupt assignment in Russia’s political history thus all acts that followed from the Moscow bombings all the way to the shooting of two Malaysian airliners will be the work of people trying to turn Russia’s people against someone else instead of its thieves in power.”The best form of protest is to not turn up when Putin demands his wars upon Russia’s own states and its ex partners”
