Pro-Russian rallies in Palestine, UK, and Serbia
Mass demonstrations are out in Beit Lahm, Belgrade, and more than 40 UK cities, against NATO's expansion in Europe.
Serbia saw mass demonstrations supporting Russia and denouncing the European Union's sanctions on it. The Serbs strongly opposed sanctions against Russia and marched in support of the country, its people, and the Russian army's special military operation in Ukraine.
The rally came out in support of Russia and the citizens of Donbass, who had suffered eight years of persecution. The demonstrators chanted slogans against NATO's expansion in eastern Europe and rejected their country's accession to the alliance.
They headed to the Russian and Belarusian embassies to express their support for the two countries, chanting slogans in support of the Russian special military operation, which aims to protect the people of Donbass.
According to Kp, the Serbs have taken improvised measures to support the Russian people, whom they referred to as "brotherly".
Kp noted that pictures of Russian President Vladimir Putin have become the hallmark of these protests, which spread like wildfire on social media, despite the sanctions that Facebook and Twitter imposed against any support for Russia.
Meanwhile, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported demonstrations in more than 40 cities in Britain, calling for ending the war and rejecting NATO's expansion in Europe.
Beit Lahm stands with Russia, too
Dozens of members of the Russian community in Beit Lahm, along with a number of Palestinian citizens, organized on Sunday evening a rally in front of the Russian Cultural Center to support Russia in the face of Western policies.
According to Sputnik, the participants expressed their support for Russia in its special military operation to protect civilians in Donbass, eastern Ukraine.
In this context, they condemned the global bias against Russia in its operation and the imposition of sanctions on it by a number of countries.
The participants stressed the need to spare Russia any danger from the West, NATO, and Ukraine, and reiterated their rejection of the policy of double standards against Russia.
On February 24, Moscow launched a special military operation in Ukraine, responding to calls from the people's republics of Donetsk and Lugansk for help in countering the aggression of Ukrainian forces, which has been ongoing since 2014.
The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that the special operation is targeting Ukrainian military infrastructure only and the civilian population is not in danger.
