A group of Russians gathered near the U.S. embassy in Moscow on Oct. 8, demanding that U.S. President Joe Biden resign, and that NATO “withdraw troops” from former-Soviet countries.
This was reported by several Telegram channels, including pro-Russian ones, which posted photos and videos from the site of the rally.
According to Russian news outlet RIA-Novosti, the rally was organized by an organization called the “National Liberation Movement.” The demonstrators rallied outside the U.S. Embassy carrying orange and black striped flags styled after the “St. George’s Ribbon” Soviet military symbol, which is widely used by Russian ultra-nationalists.
The demonstrators also led by the hand a person dressed in a costume supposedly representing one of Russia’s new RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile. The person, whose black-gloved hands protruded from the black cylindrical costume, was apparently unable to see out of it.
The protesters accused the United States of “provoking a nuclear war” and demanded that the U.S. president resign. They also demand that NATO “withdraw troops from post-Soviet states” and former Warsaw Pact countries.
Many of these countries are in fact members of the NATO defensive alliance.
The demonstrators also held posters with the slogans “USA – world evil”, “Russia – defender of the world”, “US hegemony is collapsing, and “The attack on the Crimean bridge was ordered by the CIA.”
