Remember Khabarovsk protests? A few months on, long after Western media has left town, the movement now seems to be partially reduced to older diehard Communists. Here singing a Stalin-era song about fighting German Nazis. Священная война or 'Sacred War.'

It seems the protest movement - originally a mass mobilisation in support of jailed former Governor Sergey Furgal, of the far-right LDPR - was hijacked by the Communists sometime around the end of August.

Any student journalists seeking an example of what it means to "bury the lede" might benefit from looking at this tweet by the Moscow correspondent of US state-run broadcaster , referring to the same video as above. It's the way they tell them... 🤦‍♂️

Apparently, also religious nutjobs. Unless those two guys are trying to be funny with their "Antichrist in the Kremlin" sign.
