Censorship at the start of the Peace March
Moscow government officials have banned many of the banners.
Authorities have banned the banner "War with Ukraine, shame and crime of Russia." Meanwhile, supporters of the DPR can carry any slogans, but they also do not correspond to the declared theme. While supporters of the DPR stumbled into the riot police chain, law enforcement officers are still trying to prevent them from participating in the Peace March, but the situation remains tense. The most interesting thing is that among the people who came to the DPR there are many national bolsheviks who until recently, together with the participants of the Peace March, went to the rally "Strategy 31" and were detained by the police with them. Now they are on different sides. The National Bolsheviks, in contrast to the simple, intelligent Muscovites, who mainly came to the Peace March, are quite active and aggressive; they are not used to it. There was a poster "Donbass forgive the march of traitors." Sporting very polite people in leather jackets also appeared on Pushkinskaya.
The Russian police and the “aunts” thwarted the holding of the Peace March in Novosibirsk: “Putin is hungry for death and grief.”
In Novosibirsk, the Russian police, together with provocateurs, foiled the Peace March.
"In Novosibirsk, the Peace March was actually foiled by the police and pro-Kremlin provocateurs. This proves once again that the war party is in the Kremlin. Putin does not want peace. He longs for corpses, blood, death, grief and suffering. Maybe it’s time to stop him from getting it all: grief, suffering and death? Only - personally, not us? .. ", - wrote activist Alexander Sotnik on his page on the social network Facebook.
A police officer explains to someone on the radio "They will arrange a massacre," pointing to the supporters of the DNI, the MK correspondent reports. There is evidence that some of them were able to break through the framework. This is a very dangerous situation. It is unclear why the police are inactive. Supporters of the DPR are very active, they knock on the drum and constantly shout something. Moreover, they managed to break through the framework without inspection, it is not known what objects they could carry with them.
