The protest against the war in Ukraine is intensifying in Germany: at least 100,000 people took part in a demonstration in Berlin on Sunday.
According to a police spokeswoman, the number of participants was already estimated at over a hundred thousand in the early afternoon, with more and more people joining the protest. Organizers reported 500,000 demonstrators.
Number of participants much higher than expected
The protest participants in the streets of Berlin gathering at the Victory Column continued to increase, so – due to the coronavirus pandemic – the demonstration area was extended all the way to the Tiergarten light rail station.
The demonstration, which started at 1 p.m., was called for by civil society organizations. In their speeches they called for an immediate return to the negotiating table. They also called on the Russian leadership to immediately stop fighting and withdraw their troops.
