Ukrainian peaceful protest in London, 16.03.14

Yesterday the Crimeans voted in referendum about accession to Russia, referendum recognised as illegitimate by Obama and the EU.  Hundreds of supporters with yellow and blue flags came out to march from Marble Arch to the Russian embassy to raise the issue of Putin's invasion of Ukrainian territory.

On a separate note - an ethnic population of Crimean Tatars refused to take part in the referendum and many fled. Last week my friend has housed a family of eleven in her skiing cottage in the west of  Ukraine.   I really hope this insane behaviour by Kremlin will get an adequate response in form of real sanctions and political pressure from UK and the world.
