Despite police crackdowns on protesters by Vladimir Putin’s regime, thousands of Russians have still flocked the streets to oppose Vladimir Putin’s brutal war .

Almost 7,000 people have already been detained in as many as 50 cities, according to the human rights project OVD-Info.

Tweeting pictures of the primary school aged children, Yashin said: “Nothing out of the ordinary: just kids in paddy wagons behind an anti-war poster. This is Putin’s Russia, folks. You live here.”
