RUSSIA:

  • RUSSIA: The Khabarovsk protests (see Global Anti-Government Protests Newsletter July 2020) have sparked recent small rallies in support of Khabarovsk in some other cities, including Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Underlying the protests are declining real wages, stagnant living standards and poor services.

RUSSIA:

  • Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Russia’s Far East -in the Khabarovsk region on the border with China- for the third Saturday. The protest movement has no clear leaders and was spurred on by the Kremlin’s decision to replace the governor with a new one who has never lived in the region. The demonstrators were about 50,000.
