The news is out: [MOSCOW — Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday condemned Russian authorities for using “harsh tactics” against protesters and journalists, as thousands were detained at demonstrations calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
From Vladivostok to Moscow, thousands of demonstrators defied stern warnings from authorities, turning out in freezing temperatures for the second weekend in a row against Navalny’s imprisonment and government corruption.]
Wow! The US is actually condemning “Russian harsh tactics” at repressing free speech. Double wow.
