MOSCOW, September 20. /ITAR-TASS/. A picket calling on Presidents of Ukraine and the U.S. Petro Poroshenko and Barack Obama to stop the bloodshed in Ukraine was organised by the American embassy in Moscow on Sunday.
The picket featured about 30 participants in the opposition’s rally - two hours ahead of the march in central Moscow.
“Whenever U.S. is bullets, shells, crying mothers, killed children are. Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Ukraine! U.S. - Stop,” the slogans read.
The participants in the picket called Ukraine’s president an “American spy” and called on Obama to “leave alone Ukraine” and “hand back the Nobel Peace Prize.”
The picket participants said they had been mislead as organisers of the opposition’s rally had invited them to a Peace March, which turned out to be a Betrayers March.
