Tens of thousands of people marched through central Moscow on Sunday to demonstrate against the fighting in Ukraine and Russia’s alleged complicity in the conflict.An Associated Press reporter estimated the crowd at about 20,000, although the city police department put the number at about 5,000.

The demonstrators chanted slogans including “No to war” and “The junta is in the Kremlin, not Kyiv.” The latter refers to Russia’s contention that the ousting of Ukraine’s former Russia-friendly president was a coup.
