Manicure of symbolic colors, pseudo price labels with messages on store shelves, origami cranes, inscriptions and ribbons in an urban environment. Dissatisfied residents of Russian regions expressed their position on military actions in Ukraine not only at rallies and pickets. See 7x7’s selection of the past "silent" civic actions.
Pseudo price labels
Pseudo price labels, similar to the original ones, told customers about the events in Ukraine. We cannot give examples of inscriptions, as it would violate the legislation of the Russian Federation.
Slogans on banknotes
The "money protest" was Feminist Against War's idea. Salesmen who get such banknotes can call the police, who will draw up a protocol for discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Symbols on clothes and accessories
People expressed their attitude to the events in Ukraine through their items of clothing.
Some declared their position using nail polish.
A crane made of paper is a Japanese symbol of goodness and peace.
A flash mob with green ribbons was an initiative of Russian activists. People who wear green ribbons and distribute them around the city are being held liable for discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. For example, on April 2, activist Svetlana Marina was detained in Kirov for wearing a green ribbon on her backpack.
References to art
References to works of art were one of the ways for Russians to express their position.
According to Feminist Against War, residents of the cities set up handmade memorials.
