The Kremlin’s Jackboots, Marching
It started out like this: A young woman holds a sign which says that a march against the military draft should have occurred on that spot on that day
Oborona reports (staff translation, corrections welcome):
On October 12th in St. Petersburg’s Victory Park Oborona activists Maria Govorova and Daria Kostromina were arrested for standing with signs protesting the cancellation of a protest march against the military draft.
Soon, the defenseless woman is surrounded by Putin stormtroopers
Several dozen OMON stormtroopers were waiting for the protesters when they arrived at the Park, and as soon as they began handing out leaflets calling for an all-volunteer army they were arrested, even though they were careful to maintain a distance of at least 20 meters from each other so as to quqlify as solitary picketers who have no need of a permit. Plainclothes officers recorded the activity on videotape. The arresting officers refused to provide their names and positions upon request, one of them stating he “did not feel well enough” to do so.
And hauled off to prison, where God only knows what may happen to her.
