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.
