Thousands in Moscow, St Petersburg rally in support of Russian speakers in Ukraine

Rallies and other actions in support of the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine have attracted thousands in Moscow, St Petersburg and other cities across Russia.
Strictly avoid all demonstrations, as bystanders near protests could become targets for police action. Do not photograph any protest or security forces. Ensure that travel documents are up to date, and be prepared to show them to security personnel. Allow extra time for driving in downtown Moscow.
