article image50,000 rally in Moscow against Crimea action: AFP estimate

By AFP     Mar 15, 2014 in World

Around 50,000 people rallied Saturday in central Moscow in protest at Russia's intervention in Ukraine, a day before the Crimean peninsula is expected to vote on switching to Kremlin rule, an AFP team estimated.

Many of the protesters adopted the chants and slogans of Ukraine's popular uprising that ousted pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych last month. Holding Ukrainian and Russian flags, they also shouted: "The occupation of Crimea is Russia’s disgrace" and "Hands off Ukraine."
