Daria Rudneva is the spokesperson of the Russian Anti-war committee in Sweden. She says it wasn’t easy at first to take such a public stance against the war.
Anti-war demonstrations are currently being held every Wednesday outside the Russian Embassy in Stockholm.
Among the speakers that have spoken out against the Russian war against Ukraine over the past weeks are Swedish politicians and trades union activists, as well as Ukrainians living in Sweden.
Also demonstrating were Russians living in Sweden, who have formed an “anti-war” committee and who say they were devastated when the war began, with some also having friends and relatives in Ukraine.
