“I really wanted to go out to people to give hope and show that“ you are not alone ”, and there are those in Tambov who are for peace. For me, it means to love and be loved, to live and let live – the main meanings and happiness in this, that's why we all need peace so much, ”she said.
Since the beginning of the war, all over Russia, those who take an anti-war position have been detained, arrested and fined. Those who picket with placards, write anti-war posts, wear clothes in the colors of the Ukrainian flag and simply talk about the war in public places are being persecuted. So, in Nalchik, a man was fined for discussing the war with his wife in the dining room of a sanatorium.
