There have been numerous protests around the world against Russia's invasion of Ukraine, something President Putin probably didn't expect.  An anti-war rally was held in Germany yesterday brought together over 100,000 people calling for an end to the war.  While in Cyprus, hundreds of people gathered over the weekend in support of Ukraine, reminding Cypriots of their shared experiences in the 1974 invasion. 

And Russians were no exception.  People demonstrated on the streets of St. Petersburg and Moscow, resulting in hundreds of arrests over the weekend.

Here are some of the images from around the world
