The Ukrainian community of London announced a one month-long rally condemning the Russian aggression in the Sea of Azov. Olena Verbytska, the deputy head of Ukraine's presidential administration posted that on Facebook.

'The Ukrainian diaspora and their friends in London hold a 30-days-long protest action in response to Russia's aggressive actions in the Sea of Azov, demanding to release our captured servicemen of our Navy', 

According to Verbytska, people protest near the office of the British Prime Minister, starting from November 27; they are to keep the rally running until the martial law in Ukraine is over. 

Earlier, a picket against Russian military aggression in Ukraine took place in St. Petersburg, Russia, reports Ekho Kavkaza.

About 50 people took part in the picket on Nevsky Avenue.

Olga Smirnova, a member of the Solidarity democratic organization and the organizer of the pickets, believes that the seizure of three Ukrainian military vessels and the capture of sailors signifies a new attempt by the Russian Federation to increase the zone of occupation of Ukrainian territories with weapons.

The picket participants demanded the release and return of seafarers and ships to Ukraine, to end the naval blockade of Ukrainian ports in the Sea of Azov and punish those responsible for the seizure of Ukrainian ships.
