Documentation for claim

Period/date: 6. March 2017

Debunk claim:

To allege that Europeans massively took to the streets protesting the war in Eastern Ukraine is clearly a gross overstatement of what were essentially a few small and insignificant pro-Russian gatherings that only Kremlin propaganda reported. Snezhana Aendo’s site Yadonbas.rus http://xn--80abi0beva9h.xn--p1acf/ contains video from the various sparsely attended rallies.
