Protesting the Wars

Since there really isn’t an anti-war movement in Russia, and the Putinist state has been working overtime to persuade scattered dissenters to keep their mouths firmly shut, every time I see evidence of anyone’s having the guts to protest publicly the madness of the past year, I feel a little bit of hope. And the desire to show the opposition in Syria that not all Russians are their enemies. Unfortunately, I have no idea whose these brave women are, and where exactly this protest took place, other than two or three days ago somewhere in or near Moscow. TRR

“The Russian Federation has been fighting in other countries for 70 years. A patriarch who blesses war is not a Christian.”
“In Russia, whatever the war, it’s ‘holy.’ But the individual’s life is worth a kopeck.”
“Mercy is what we appeal to. Alexander Men.”
“Schools and hospitals instead of bombs and shells. No to war with Syria and Ukraine.”
“War is a tragedy. Remember the victims. (Syria, Aleppo…)”
