Albina Sentyakova

Tomsk resident Albina Sentyakova protested [the war] by shaving her hair off on the city’s Novosobornaya Square on Wednesday, October 19. She placed the hair in a box, and then held it aloft, thus displaying the slogan “No means no,” Sibir.Realii’s correspondent reports.

The protester was not detained, as the police were not in the vicinity.

“I cannot remain silent about what is happening in the world and in our country. It’s quite painful and unbearable. I cannot be silent. All the men in my family have a military specialty and silently accept the fact that they will have to go (to the front — SR),” Sentyakova said.
