Thousands of Russians on Sunday marched through Moscow to protest against the Kremlin's involvement in the Ukraine crisis, in the country's first major anti-war rally since fighting erupted in April.The rally, dubbed "The Peace March", came amid a Russian media blackout on the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine.Moscow police, which tend to downplay the popularity of opposition rallies, said nearly 5,000 had turned up.Some chanted slogans of Ukraine's uprising, which ousted a Kremlin-backed president in February, such as "Out with the gang" and "Glory to Ukraine".Following a crackdown on dissent after Putin's comeback in 2012, opposition rallies have become increasingly rare and anyone who dared to publicly question the Kremlin's Ukraine policy has been pilloried.Protesters at the march said the war in Ukraine should be stopped at all costs.
