And YouTube, Navalny called on the population to protest. “Every day we lose the opportunities that the present gives us. Every day we are losing our future: 20 years in a row now! For 20 years in a row we have become impoverished, our country is degrading, our education is getting worse, our health care is increasingly miserable. And no one can stop this except ourselves. So I urge you: do not be silent, resist, go out. Nobody can protect us but ourselves, and there are so many of us that if we want to achieve something, we will achieve it ”.
