MOSCOW. April 28 (Interfax) – About 1,000 activists of Russian youth organizations have donated blood in an action being held in front of the U.S. embassy in Moscow on Saturday.
“This blood will be used to form a donor bank for the victims of American aggression,” Anastasiya Suslova, the press secretary of the Nashi movement, told Interfax. The purpose of the action “is to draw the attention of the U.S. State Department and the U.S embassy to consequences of their orders,” she said. The blood donated by young Russians is also intended for those” who will yet suffer from the American struggle for lofty ideals,” she added. The action, in the estimate of law enforcement agencies, involves over 1,000 activists of the Nashi, Young Russia and Mestnye (Locals)youth movements. The U.S. embassy is being guarded by reinforced police squads and riot police. The demonstrators’ conduct is absolutely proper, polices aid.
