View from a video drone that hovered above us at the protest today. Russian media films the protests at 8am and says there aren't many people. The linked article is a hilarious account of how the Russian media is covering the protests.
I have no doubt that over a million people came today. It was unbelievable.
Maybe with an undeniable mass of people and the Lenin statue in pieces – it was pulled down and smashed with sledgehammers, kind of like the Berlin Wall – Russia will figure out that Ukraine wants to take a different road.
