Russians in St. Petersburg demonstrate against the invasion in Ukraine after jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny called on Russians to stage daily protests. Navalny depicted President Vladimir Putin as an ‘obviously insane tsar.’

NEW: U.S. has not seen Russia preparing more forces to deploy to Ukraine beyond more than 150,000 troops already arrayed on border: senior U.S. defense official
edit on 2-3-2022 by putnam6 because: (no reason given)
Andrey Kortunov is a respected foreign policy analyst and adviser to the Kremlin.
He is no apologist for the Kremlin but is not afraid to defend its actions if he sees fit, and we are used to seeing him on our news doing so.
Not today. Not after this invasion.

I fear once the full impact of the sanctions kick in against the Russian people, along with how every Russian in the world has been made a pariah, they are being excluded from everything, they will start to turn against the west and these protests will die out for that reason. Cancel culture is in full effect right now, and it's outright xenophobia the way ordinary Russians are being treated by anyone who isn't Russian or Belarussian. But the narrative is Russia bad. So that makes it OK to hate Russians indiscriminately?
