    Crowds, great emotions and powerful speeches! Report on the March against Russia’s War Crimes [VIDEO and PHOTO REPORT]

    The march against Russian aggression was organized by the clubs of the “Gazeta Polska” under the slogan “Mothers call: stop shooting at children.”

    The protest against the Russian aggression against Ukraine moved from Warsaw’s Three Crosses Square to the Embassy of the Russian Federation. This event brought together thousands of people who wanted to express their disapproval towards Russia’s criminal actions in Ukraine. 


    The demonstrators wore white-red and Ukrainian flags, “Russians, stop killing kids” and “Achtung Russia” banners, and protested against the killing of the most innocent victims of the war. Among the demonstrators were mothers, for whom the death of a child is the worst thing that can happen.



    The event was also attended by the most important personalities of the country, including representatives of the highest authorities. With us were Sejm Marshal Elżbieta Witek, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Minister of Family and Social Policy Marlena Maląg. “We especially welcome the Ukrainian Ambassador Andrii Deshchytsia,” said the editor-in-chief of “Gazeta Polska” and “Gazeta Polska Codziennie”, Tomasz Sakiewicz, before the beginning of the event.


    The march began with a speech by the Ukrainian Ambassador to Poland, Andrii Deshchytsia.


    “Mr Tomasz, thank you for organising this march, thank you to all those who have come to this march, and I would like to express my conviction that these demonstrations are a good sign and a good message for those who are in Ukraine defending Ukrainian cities and not just Ukraine, but the whole of Europe. This is a strong signal of support. Long live Poland, long live Ukraine,” he said.



    “We don’t exactly know whatever comes. Russia’s war machine is in motion. Today we are fighting on all fronts, on the Western European fronts, for the harshest sanctions, to undermine the foundations of this war machine, for Polish independence. If we help the Ukrainians, we are fighting for the independence of Poland. If we try to support the Ukrainians in their struggle, by all means, we also fight for Polish sovereignty and independence,” stressed Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.


    A blue-yellow banner reading “Russians stop killing kids” was carried at the head of the march. The marchers wore blue-yellow flags of Ukraine, there were also Polish flags. Several times the cry “Kyiv, Warsaw – a common cause” was raised, and as the head of the march approached the Russian embassy, the crowd shouted, “Soviets go home!”
