Putin’s Victory: The day after
Our journalist Tomasz Kułakowski provides New Eastern Europe with a photoreport from the protests taking place on Pushkinskaya Square in Moscow.
After the electoral victory of Vladimir Putin, the opposition added its voice with protests on Pushkinskaya Square in Moscow.
The amount of protesters was 10 times less than a month earlier, in the bitter cold, reaching –20 degrees Celsius. According to various sources, between 5,000 and 20,000 people came out to Pushkinskaya Square. Those in attendance of the Anti-Putin rallies included residents of Moscow, who call themselves the “creative class” – the intelligentsia and the middle class, who are actively against the Putin regime.
