So sad for those Vietnamese people, I'm ashamed to be part of the human race. I feel for the perpetrators also, where are they at spiritually, what happened to them in their lives to make them act this way? It's all very sad.
Russian police have arrested more than 3,000 people in nationwide protests demanding the release of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, the Kremlin’s most prominent foe.
The unprecedented demonstrations in more than 60 cities – in temperatures as low as -50 Celsius (-58 Fahrenheit) – highlighted how Navalny has built influence far beyond the political and cultural centres of Moscow and St Petersburg.
In Moscow, an estimated 15,000 demonstrators gathered in and around Pushkin Square in the city centre, where clashes with police broke out and demonstrators were dragged off by helmeted riot officers to police buses and detention trucks. Some were beaten with batons.
Navalny’s wife Yulia was among those arrested.
The protests stretched across Russia’s vast territory, from the island city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk north of Japan and the eastern Siberian city of Yakutsk, where temperatures plunged to -50C, to Russia’s more populous cities.
Protesting outside in -50, that's a lot of anger being used to try and fuel change. Just wondering if comrade Putin will ever get to use his multimillion ruble palace.
