Belgorod operation: nationalists against Vladimir Putin
Es does happen that opponents of the Russian President Wladimir Putin hold press conferences. Because of the repression they do it in exile. They often talk about a Russia of the future and are hardly noticed because of the current balance of power.
But when Putin opponents stood in front of cameras, they were sure to get attention. They, too, performed in exile, in the north-eastern Ukrainian region of Sumy. They stood in the open air, in uniforms, with assault rifles and an armored vehicle that they said they had used when they invaded the neighboring western Russian city Belgorod looted territory earlier in the week.
