A similar protest was organised in Prague at the end of October, where thousands of people took to the streets to protest against the war. Similar protests were organised in other cities across Europe.
Between October and November 2022, Russia intensified its attacks against Ukraine's energy infrastructure, hoping they would force the Ukrainian authorities to give in and accept negotiations. The Ukrainians, however, still maintain that the decision-makers must not give in and must act to liberate the occupied territories.
