I saw Russian news about some idiots (russian news used that word) that put gallows on Kharkovs main square. they used them to hang dummies with faces of politicians (photographs). All was accompanied with the highly recognisable themesong of Woland from Master/Margerita miniseries.

More info will be posted when i find it.

Russian news anchor was visibly shocked when she had to read this news.

See Russian source (one of) : https://www.vesti.ru/doc.html?id=3163943

As far as I understood it, the group that made these dummies do not agree with Kiev/City policy and intend to erect a "kharkov people's republic" which would then sooner/later join the other 2 donbass states.
