Six activists showed up in Lubyanka Square, by the KGB/FSB building, holding flags of Ukraine, Georgia, and Chechnya (Ichkeria) and shouting, “Free political prisoners” and “Rusnya, pull back the tanks!” (Rusnya is pejorative for Russia or the Russians.)
Also, “death to the Empire” and “freedom to Boris Stomakhin”, a radical journalist who served five years in prison for his articles and has recently been sentenced to seven more. For nothing but his writings, extremist as they may sound.
On the dark side, after Satan’s Parade in Donetsk, I find it rather hard to have a shred of sympathy for the natives supporting the separatists.
