Kyiv, December 12, Interfax - Activists of the FEMEN women movement held an unsanctioned action to support Russian opposition in downtown Moscow.
The action titled God, turn out the king! took place not far from the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, the movement says in its press release.
"We are inspired with the actions of Russian non-parliamentary opposition as they don't accept the results of Russian electoral flimflam lottery. We look forward to the birth of New Russia without thieves, tricksters and political convicts," participants in the action said.
Half naked FEMEN representatives dressed in sacking "skirts" with a two-headed eagle held banners saying: "God, turn out the king!" and crosses made of branches.
The FEMEN movement was established several years ago in Ukraine. Its activists regularly hold actions of protest in Kyiv and other cities of the country. Participants are usually half-naked and so Ukrainian police detain them for this. Girls mainly protest against prostitution.
