Faces of Protest

Ukrainians gathered in Times Square on March 5 to protest the Russian invasion of Ukraine and to call for a no fly zone over Ukraine to protect civilian lives. Supported by Russians, Georgians, Kazakhs, and others from former Soviet republics, the protesters were universal in attacking Putin personally for the invasion rather than blaming Russians.

A protester named Cole holds a sign in Times Square. The other side of the sign insulted Putin in Russian with an unprintable epithet.
