As you know, every 1st of May a few photos and videos of what's going on during the Labour Day in Russia, Ukraine and other post-Soviet states. Comparing with previous years, the mood of demonstrators was rather downbeat this time - mostly because a can of worms was opened not long ago in Ukraine, and it significantly effects us as well. There aren't many pics/videos yet, but for now I'll post what I already have.
A brief overview of anarchist demonstrations in St.Petersburg:
Anarchists in Nizhny Novgorod (sorry, couldn't find a longer vid yet, but I expect much more to come from NN and Kirov, since there's a lot of anarchists):
Kharkiv, Ukraine. The second largest and probably the most left-wing city in, unfortunately, the most right-wing country of today's Europe:
Slavyansk, the epicenter of the conflict in Donbass. Looks like there are only "K"PU members and nationalists of various sorts, which is bad. But given the difficult situation they're in, I won't judge them hard:
Odessa, Ukraine. Borotba: "The junta will be defeated, the victory will be ours"
Odessa. This banner was probably brought by Turkish or Kurdish students:
Kherson, Ukraine. Nationalists trying to disrupt the rally:
And a rare May Day video from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Don't remember hearing anything about Kyrgyz trade unionism before:
That'd be enough for today, I think. Hopefully, more will come tomorrow (or in the next few days, at least).
