JE comments: WAIS thanks the AP's Dmitri Lovetsky for the photo, and Boris Volodarsky for sending it. Boris appended no comment, but I'm sure this image will inspire other WAISers to do so.
The protesters all appear to be in the under-30 demographic. A pandemic-era curiosity: they are unmasked except for one guy in the background. I do see "lowered" masks on a couple of others. Did the riot police/stormtroopers strip them of their Covid protection--as well as of their anonymity?
