One-Man Demonstration Against Putin


Yuri Belov, a Russian activist living in Finland, held a one-man demonstration against Vladimir Putin outside the Russian consulate in Turku on 13 June 2012. His initial plan was to demonstrate on 12 June 2012, coinciding with mass protests in cities across Russia, but the consulate was closed to mark Russia’s national day.

“I have had an opportunity to talk with a number of bypassers, and they all agreed that Putin needs to go. It is time to realise that Russia is no worse than any other country; we deserve free and fair elections, too,” Mr Belov said. He volunteers for the opposition website,, which calls for Putin’s resignation.
