No real comment, just a photo report from the demonstration against Russia’s involvement in Ukraine that took place in Moscow today. Around 25,000 are estimated to have showed up. As far as I know there were no major incidents or provocations from anyone (yay!), there was lots of blue and gold combo (colors of the Ukrainian flag), the crowd was pretty diverse, including in terms of interest groups, though, at times, not particularly energetic, the security checks were really fast and efficient (the press had to go through with everybody else), and the police were pretty relaxed and “soft.” What shocked me the most was that after the protest wrapped up, the entire area – 4 kilometers or so – was cleaned up and re-opened to traffic in a matter of minutes. Crazy efficiency! Anyway… hopefully it was a good day for world peace.
