Hundreds of people joined an anti-war demonstration outside Downing Street in central London on Thursday, Feb 22, 2022 – following a Russian full-scale invasion in Ukrain on Thursday morning.

The demonstrators called for the UK government and international organizations to impose sanctions on Russia and force it to stop the war. Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled Britain’s largest-ever package of sanctions against Russia on Thursday, targeting banks, members of President Vladimir Putin’s closest circle and wealthy Russians who enjoy high-rolling London lifestyles.
