Dozens of protesters gathered outside Russisches Haus in Berlin, on Thursday, demanding the cultural center be shut down. “Russisches House is a home for the AfD, for the classic nexus we talk about, red-brown, Putin encouraging extreme-right organizations and funding them all over the world,” said Mary Killian from the Organization For the Right to Resist. “It’s actually run by a sanctioned organization. It’s part of the Kremlin. It’s part of the center of the Russian government. It should’ve been closed a long time ago.” The protesters marched to the Russian embassy where they held more speeches against authoritarian governments including Russia, Iran and Poland.
