Muscovites staged an anti-war protest in Moscow Russia today. I attended the protest and found it to be very revealing that a large number of Russian citizens do not agree with the Russian parliament’s decision to send its troops to Ukraine. The protest organizers anticipated 50,000 protestors. The official numbers given by the Russian government’s state news agency Itar-Tas were 3,000 protestors but an independent news agency reported 30,000 protestors. In my opinion there were no possibilities that there were only 3,000 protestors. The parade road was completely filled with people as far as the eye could see in front and behind me and it was shoulder to shoulder people the whole path. Maybe, Itar-Tas had a type-o when they wrote the news release and left a zero off the number because 30,000 protestors is definitely closer to the truth.
