An action of solidarity with Ukraine took place in Warsaw today.

About 300 residents of the Polish capital came out for a march of protest against the policy of the Russian president Vladimir Putin. Among the action’s participants there were not only Poles, but also Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians, a charter97.org’s correspondent reports. The procession started in Zamkovy Square and marched along the city’s central streets. People were carrying the national flags of Ukraine, Belarus and Poland, and chanting anti-Putin slogans.

They also held a performance in Warsaw city center – a person in Putin’s mask was placed in a cage.

The event ended at the entrance to the embassy of the Russian Federation. The protesters lit 298 candles to commemorate the victims of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 flight.
