Dozens Of Women In Moscow Make Rare Public Call For Their Husbands' Return From Ukraine War


By Current Time

Dozens of women rallied in Moscow on November 7, demanding that their husbands, who have been mobilized to fight in Russia's invasion of Ukraine, return home, a rare display of protest amid a crackdown on any dissent over the conflict. After Moscow authorities rejected the women's request to hold the rally, citing COVID-19 restrictions, the women joined a demonstration by communists on the Teatralnaya Square that was marking the 106th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. The women's rally lasted for about five minutes before police cordoned them off and ordered them to halt the action.
