He suggested that residents of large Russian cities go out into the courtyard on the evening of February 14, turn on the flashlight on their phone and raise it up. The construction of glowing hearts is also encouraged. “Let the social media feeds be filled with thousands of such burning hearts from dozens of Russian cities,” Volkov writes..

Mass actions for the release of Navalny, who was in jail, took place in many cities of Russia on January 23 and 31, and people also took to the streets in Moscow and St. Petersburg on the evening of February 2. More than 10 thousand of their participants were detained throughout the country, hundreds of people are still under administrative arrest. Volkov said last Thursday that the continuation of the protests will only lead to new arrests and arrests, a gradual drop in the number of shares, and also jeopardize the political work of Navalny’s headquarters. Therefore, FBK decided not to hold street actions last weekend..Volkov: a protest action'in a different format' will be held on February 14 New street protests, according to Volkov, will take place in the spring. For the release of Navalny, his comrade-in-arms promised to fight with “foreign policy methods” – seeking the introduction of sanctions against the entourage of Vladimir Putin.
