/ РОССИЙСКИЕ ДЕМОКРАТЫ В ЭМИГРАЦИИ КАК ЧАСТЬ МЕЖДУНАРОДНОЙ КОАЛИЦИИ В ПОДДЕРЖКУ УКРАИНЫ – Диалог организаторов антивоенных акций в российской диаспоре и украинских правозащитников
Our new international zoom forum of our Ukrainian- and Russian-American Antiwar Roundtable took place on Saturday June 25. It was focused upon the state of the antiwar movement in the Russian diaspora based on its latest wave of protests against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine that were held by Russian expats in two dozen countries on June 12 (officially observed by the Kremlin as ‘the Russia Day’). We listened the organizers and participants of these rallies from five counties representing a new wave of up-and-coming activists, some of whom have been forced out of their native country. We also heard from Ukraine’s prominent human rights defenders about the Ukrainians’ views of the Russian protest and protesters against the invasion and of their value as an asset in the struggle for the liberation of Ukraine and for the relations between our two peoples in the post-Putin future.
