Freiburg (dpa/lsw) – Under the motto “Against discrimination against Russian-speaking people – for a quick peace in Europe”, around 80 cars paraded through the city area in Freiburg on Sunday afternoon. The route had previously been determined by the authorities. According to a police spokesman, there were no incidents.

According to the spokesman, what was planned for the later afternoon was a pro-Ukrainian rally in the city center entitled “Then as now: fight fascism and the imperialist war”. The organizers had registered between 150 and 200 participants, said the police spokesman.

In Germany there were commemorative events and rallies in various cities on Sunday to mark the 77th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe, also in view of the current political situation. This time the day is also marked by the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine.
